Workers at Antofagasta's Antucoya copper mine set to kick off strike

Unionized workers at Antofagasta PLC's Antucoya copper mine in Chile will kick off a strike Oct. 16 after a contract negotiation failed, Reuters reported Oct. 12, citing union President Cesar Garcia.

The copper miner started government-mediated talks earlier in the month to try to avoid a strike at the operations after the union rejected the company's final contract offer.

Garcia said the company has "no resources to continue negotiating," and a strike is now unavoidable.

The Antucoya mine produced 72,200 tonnes of copper in 2018.

Meanwhile, Felipe Franco, head of the 271 affiliate guild, said they will initiate a strike at Antofagasta's Los Pelambres copper mine if an agreement is not reached soon.

In late September, a union leader at Los Pelambres urged workers to reject the company's latest wage offer.

Los Pelambres produced 357,800 tonnes of copper in 2018, almost half of Antofagasta's total production.
