Tentative deal at Vale in Ontario

From the Globe and Mail:

The end to a long-running and bitter strike in Ontario is in sight as mining giant Vale announced it reached a tentative agreement with production and maintenance workers on Sunday.

The metals miner says the agreement involves a new five-year contract with United Steel Workers Locals 6500 and 6200, which represent production and maintenance employees in Sudbury and Port Colborne.

No word on Sunday about a possible settlement of the year-long strike at Vale Inco’s Voisey’s bay operation.
