    Union at Chile's Escondida mine demand changes to contract offer

    The union for Chile (Stuttgart: 704599.SG - news) 's Escondida copper mine on Thursday rejected a contract offer by the company and threatened to strike unless changes were made. The mine, controlled by BHP, is in the middle of labor negotiations after workers extended the current contract last year, following a 44-day strike that shook the global copper market and caused huge economic losses in Chile. The offer by Escondida, the world's largest copper mine, included a signing bonus of about $23,000 and a salary readjustment linked to inflation, which was below the guild's initial demand.
