**Update: Strike at Goderich mine ends after collective agreement ratified

Unifor members of Local 16-O have been on strike fighting aggressive concessions from an American company since April 27, 2018. The employer, Compass Minerals, has tabled a long list of concessions including reduced benefits, extended shift length, forced overtime, and weakened contracting-out provisions in the collective agreement.

To make matters worse, Compass has contracted Vic Progressive Drilling to recruit scabs from Sussex, New Brunswick and surrounding communities.
