Chile port & copper workers protest over pensions policy

Workers at major ports and copper mines in Chile are joining a nationwide protest over pensions policy this week that is set to end with a day-long stoppage on April 30. Around 8,000 workers at 25 port terminals are expected to join the protest, according to the Chilean Portworkers Union. Union leaders demand that the President sign into legislation a policy approved by lawmakers, allowing employees to withdraw up to 10% of their pensions savings to help compensate for the impact of the pandemic.
