Unionised workers at Chilean copper mine El Abra, controlled by Freeport-McMoran, accepted a wage contract offered by the company, union president Juana Mejias said on Thursday.
Tensions between the union and Arizona-based Freeport, the world’s biggest listed copper producer, have been high since the company scaled back El Abra’s operations last year and laid off 650 workers.
