There may be an end in sight for the strike in Voisey’s Bay which is now well over a year long.
Darren Cove is the President of the United Steelworkers Local 9508.
We reached Cove in St. John’s outside of the facility where negotiations will be taking place this weekend.
Cove says he’s cautiously optimistic heading back into negotiations.
That sense of optimism may have to do with the appointment of a mediator.
The provincial government has appointed Bill Wells as an independent mediator.
The government hopes Wells will help bring the lengthy strike to an end.
Negotiations are taking place on Sunday, September 19 and Monday, September 20.
