Still no word from Husky Energy on their plans for United Steelworkers local 624 members who called an end to their 4 month old strike last week.
What we do know is, both sides confirmed Monday that they will meet again at ten o'clock Tuesday morning.
Union president Mike Edelbrock has no idea if Tuesday's face-to-face gathering will be a negotiating session or will Husky's other options believed to be available to them occur.
Those are believed to be replacing the United Steelworkers with permanent replacements, in effect firing them, or having them come back to work while a new contract is talked out, or having the workers come back only if they agree to the companies final contract offer, which the union has already rejected once.
Edelbrock says they'll show up and listen to what Husky has to say.
The maneuvering related to this work stoppage has been fast and furious in the past week.
The company declared an impasse, the union says there was no impasse. Husky advertised for permanent replacement workers, the union ends their strike.
Edelbrock says they are ready to go back to work.
Asked about Tuesday's agenda, Husky spokesman Mel Duvall says they had no further comment at this time.
