LUNDIN SEEKS MEDIATION TO STAVE OFF STRIKE IN CHILE
Lundin Mining, owner of the Candelaria mine in Chile, has requested government mediation in a last- ditch effort to stave off a strike by one of its unions after failing to reach a contract deal, the company said Wednesday. The mine’s union of 350 members rejected the company’s latest most recent offer on Monday. “If a collective contract is not signed within this period, workers can exercise their right to strike,” the Toronto- based company said in a statement, reiterating its willingness to reach an agreement. The union could not be immediately reached for comment. Candelaria produced 111,400 tons of copper in 2019.
