Workers in Chile call off strike, to try Mediation

Chile: Workers at Chile’s Escondida mine, the largest copper mine in the world, agreed to temporarily suspend a work stoppage planned for next week to meet with local regulators according to a document seen by Reuters.

The company, controlled by multinational BHP, has requested state mediation to reach an agreement with workers.

In the statement, the union said its board of directors had been summoned to “emergency meetings” with the state mining regulator and a government labor office on September 12 and 13.
