Unions ramp up pressure on Chile copper miner Codelco

Unionized mine workers in Chile, the world’s top copper producer, warned that health should take precedence over output, one day after state-run Codelco’s unions threatened a walkout at some of its operations. Workers with the Federation of Copper Workers said there had been an “alarming” spike in coronavirus cases at some mines, one week after a miner at the company’s massive Chuquicamata mine died from COVID-19.
