Unifor and Compass Minerals have agreed to return to the bargaining table tomorrow looking to end a lengthy strike. The two sides will resume talks less than a week after striking workers blocked an access road to the mine in an effort to deter replacement workers that are being flown in from New Brunswick. Compass Minerals said it used contractors to fill long term orders and had little choice because it's such a competitive market. The 348 workers at the salt mine walked of the job on April 27th. Unifor says the company's last offer included a long list of concessions that included reducing benefits, extending shift length, forced overtime and weakening existing contracting out provisions The community in Goderich has come together to show support for striking workers and their families who have been off the job for 11 weeks now.
