Strike looming at KGHM's 55%-owned Sierra Gorda copper mine in Chile

A workers' strike looms at KGHM Polska Miedź SA's 55%-owned Sierra Gorda copper mine in Chile after a union rejected the miner's latest offer in contract negotiations, Reuters reported March 19, citing Union 1 President Maykel Ocayo.

The Polish copper miner may ask for government mediation in the hopes of securing a deal from the 520-worker union, according to the report.

"I hope they will be ready to have an agreement because at this moment there are zero conversations," Ocayo said, noting that the negotiation's stumbling block was the amount allocated for the signing bonus.

Meanwhile, Sierra Gorda's Union 2 accepted the terms of the new contract.
