Compass Minerals announced its unionized employees at the Goderich salt mine in Ontario, Canada, have ratified a three-year collective bargaining agreement, ending an 11-week strike at the mine. The union representing 341 hourly employees at the Goderich salt mine began the industrial action at the end of April. The Goderich mine has an annual production capacity of 8 million tons of rock salt, which serves the highway de-icing market in Canada and the Great Lakes region.

“We are very pleased that our employees have ratified this agreement, which aligns our operations with our investments in continuous mining and provides the flexibility to operate the mine effectively and more efficiently,” said Anthony Sepich, senior vice president, salt for Compass Minerals.
