Thumbnail image for  ioc logo.jpg Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for usw.jpgAs you’ve heard in the news this morning, Union officicals have returned from 17 days of Negotiating with IOC in Sept Iles, Quebec. They returned with an Offer from the company, and so far the news is not good. Union President Ron Thomas says they won’t reccomend it. He spoke briefly with our Andrew Brown. Thomas won’t release details of the offer until tomorrow’s meeting. The big sticking point during talks has been the company’s desire to fly workers in and out of town. We contacted IOC spokseperson Heather Bruce Veitch about this latest development in the contract negotiations . She told us that she will comment on this following fridays meeting of the steelworkers. Once again, The union will hold a membership meeting tomorrow morning at 8:30 and they hope to have a vote on the offer during the meeting.
