Talks Broken-off with Looming Industrial Inquiry

Talks have already broken off between Vale and the United Steelworkers Union Local 9508.

Talks resumed talks yesterday morning to try and settle the 14-month strike at the Voisey’s Bay mine site.

Darren Cove is President of the Local 9508.

He says they sat down with Vale yesterday morning.

Talks broke off quickly when both sides were unable to reach an agreement.

Cove adds that they did not get the response they were hoping for on their last proposal to the company.

He says the next step is to continue with the industrial inquiry.

The provincial government will launch the inquiry Friday.
