MINE WORKERS IN GODERICH MEETING WITH COMPASS MINERALS
7/12/2018 8:48:15 AM
Unifor and Compass Minerals in Goderich have agreed to return to bargaining today in an effort to end a strike.
The 348 workers at the salt mine walked of the job on April 27th.
Bargaining will resume less than a week after striking workers blocked an access road to the mine to express frustration over the company's use of replacement workers the union said were being flown in from New Brunswick.
In a letter to the community late last month, Compass Minerals said it has used contractors to produce salt to fill long-term orders, and had little choice but to do so in a competitive market.
