Canada’s Unifor union said it reached a tentative agreement with Compass Minerals International Inc to end a 12-week strike at a salt mine in Goderich, Ontario.

The bargaining committee representing 348 members of Unifor Local 16-0 will bring the tentative deal to a vote at a membership meeting today, the union told Reuters.

The details of the agreement will only be presented to members, Unifor said in an online statement on Saturday.

On July 4, miners represented by the union had blockaded access to a road used during shift changes at the mine.

Unifor, which has been on strike at the Compass mine since April 27, issued a statement last Tuesday that the two parties had agreed to return to the bargaining table.
