Bell Helicopter model ARH-70A was canceled in the fall of 2008.
A statement by company officials said Bell accepted a suggestion from a federal mediator for both parties to return to talks.
Picketing began on June 15 outside eight facilities where they produce parts, components and assemblies for all Bell aircraft, including the V-22 Osprey and H-1 military helicopters and the company's civilian models.
The employees rejected a three-year contract because of proposed increases in medical costs and plans to outsource the work of janitors.
