Negotiations between the United Steelworkers and Vale have been postponed until this weekend.
Darren Cove is the President of the United Steelworkers Local 9508.
He says talks are scheduled to resume Saturday, October 2.
They are currently scheduled for two days.
Details of the negotiations so far are not being made public due to a media blackout.
Provincially-appointed mediator, Bill Wells, will return to assist the parties in reaching an agreement.
The employees have been on strike for nearly 14 months.
