Negotitations Enter Day Four

Things are looking promising for the employees of Voisey’s Bay who have been on strike for nearly 14 months.

Negotiations between the United Steelworkers and Vale have now entered their fourth day.

Bill Wells, a provincially appointed mediator, is assisting in the negotiations.

The talks were originally scheduled for two days.

Wayne Fraser, the District Director for Ontario and Atlantic Canada, told us Monday that talks would continue outside of the scheduled two days if progress was being made.

Details from the negotiations are not being made public with a media blackout still in effect.

We spoke with a source shortly before 12pm who told us that talks are in fact continuing.
