Still not reaching an agreement, Vale and the United Steelworkers Local 9508 now are dealing with a provincial Industrial Inquiry Commission (IIC) to get the strike settled.
John Roil is the Chair of the IIC.
He says the IIC met in St. John’s to come up with a plan of action.
Roil says both parties have been contacted and required to produce documents concerning past bargaining efforts.
He says both parties now have a week to respond.
Roil says after a timely matter in reviewing the matter and in addition to meeting with both parties, the IIC will now travel to Labrador.
Roil adds that as the Inquiry unfolds, the next update won’t occur within two to three weeks from now.
