Southern Copper Corporation’s labor union said its workers at Toquepala、Cuajone copper mine and Ilo smelter will go on strike April 10 local time, according to Bloomberg.

SHANGHAI, Apr. 4 (SMM) -Southern Copper Corporation’s labor union said its workers at Toquepala and Cuajone copper mine and Ilo smelter will go on strike April 10 local time, according to Bloomberg.

The strike plan was informed March 31. The workers aim to gain more share in the company’s profit last year through the strike.

But the company attempted to dissuade workers at Toquepala and Cuajone copper mine from doing so this month. The company’s Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Oscar Gonzalez reckons the government will not approve the strike, and will employ contract workers to protect production if these workers insist on the strike.

The company agreed on a negotiation with the labor union on profit share requirements April 5-6.
