Workers at the Canadian Institute for the Blind (CNIB) have been on strike in Winnipeg since March 12, but they could soon be back to work.

A tentative deal was reached late Wednesday night with the help of a government appointed conciliation officer, the union representing the workers said in a news release.

The 19 locked out workers will see the deal at 4 p.m. Thursday and then vote on it. Until the deal is ratified, picketing outside CNIB headquarters at 1080 Portage Avenue will continue.

UPDATE: March 25, 10:10 p.m. — Workers voted in favour of the new deal unanimously and will return to work Monday, March 29.
