Chilean copper mine workers seek dialogue about COVID-19 concerns

Unionised copper mine workers in Chile asked to be included in a dialogue between companies and the government to address the ongoing pandemic in this sector. The Chilean Mines Federation – which groups the workers at Chile’s principal copper deposits – has stated, “We want to request, as the largest mining organisation in Chile, a three-way dialogue to prevent even more mine workers from becoming infected”. The federation also asked that health and mining officials be more transparent in disclosing information about sanitary inspections at mines.
