EUGENE, Ore. - We are now in the fifth day of the Lane County Workers' Strike, and information managers at the county confirm that another round of negotiations is underway.

County Spokesperson Devon Ashbridge says that talks resumed at 3 p.m. on Sunday between the county and AFSCME.

A state mediator was also involved in the new round of talks, where the county and AFSCME have been going back and forth since March, trying to reach a new 3-year agreement for the AFSCME general and nurses unit.

The strike has involved nearly 700 Lane County employees.
