Union leaders at the world’s No. 3 copper mine dug in their heels on Thursday, saying workers would reject management’s latest offer to end a 14-day-old strike at the sprawling Collahuasi copper pit. The union vowed to stay on the picket line until management agrees to revive the stalled talks.
Collahuasi, jointly owned by Xstrata and Anglo American, has “declared war” against the union with its latest move, said a Santiago-based consultant who talked with the mine’s managers about the standoff.
