SMM7, March 14 / PRNewswire-FirstCall-Asianet /-A vote at Antofagasta's Centinela copper mine in Chile on Monday showed that executives were more likely to go on strike after rejecting a salary agreement.
It is reported that 94.7% of the members are in favor of the strike, but before that, the government still needs a 10-day compulsory mediation.
Celso Pardo, the union chairman of the Centinela copper mine, said this reflected the low wages Antofagasta offered its workers.
He added that a strike would pose a threat to the sustainability of production as most of the executives at the mine were union members.
The Centinela mine produced 27600 tons of copper in 2019.
Workers at the Zaldivar copper mine in Antofagastas, Chile, voted down and 99 per cent of their members rejected the collective pay agreement and decided to go on strike on July 15, pending government mediation, Chilean trade unions said on Friday.
"[concern] the result of the vote of the workers at the Zaldivar Copper Mine in Chile fell to the ground! A strike is tentatively scheduled for July 15
