Workers go on strike at First Quantum's Las Cruces copper mine in Spain

About 85% of the 800-strong workforce at First Quantum Minerals Ltd.'s Las Cruces copper mine in Spain started a strike, demanding the payment of toxic bonuses, or hazard pay, for subcontractors, Mining.com reported July 27, citing Spanish media.

Juan Antonio Caravaca, a spokesperson for the Comisiones Obreras union, said that no major incidents were reported since the start of the labor action on July 27 except for the detention of some administrative staff along the access road to the mine, EFE news agency reported.

The protest was accompanied by a picket line at the mine entrance which would last for four days, and will be joined by the permanent staff as well as the workers from at least eight subcontractor companies.

Las Cruces produced 73,664 tonnes of copper cathode in 2017, with production expected to reach 70,000 tonnes this year, according to the company's website.
