A strike at Votorantim Metais’ Cajamarquilla zinc smelter in Peru is not likely, SMM understands. The smelter is now in talk with its workers, saying the strike is illegal.

SHANGHAI, Apr. 28 (SMM) – Cajamarquilla zinc smelter’s labor union leader said Thursday workers plan an indefinite strike starting May 6 in order to gain more bonus and better working conditions, according to foreign media.

A strike at Votorantim Metais’ Cajamarquilla zinc smelter in Peru is not likely, SMM learnt from one person familiar with the matter. The smelter is now in talk with its workers, saying the strike is illegal.

Votorantim said the labor union required higher salary after prices rose. Actually, profit did not see big improvement since prices had been hovered at lows for a long time. The smelter is now in full operation. But the company still worries frequent rainfalls may affected future yields.

The Cajamarquilla zinc smelter produced some 340,000 tonnes of refined zinc last year.
