A government-mediated meeting between BHP Billiton and striking workers at its Escondida mine in Chile has failed, and workers will head back to their encampment without any future dialogue planned, a union spokesman told Reuters on Monday. “The company is continuing with their stubborn posture, and thus there is nothing to discuss anymore and we’re going back to our camp,” spokesperson Carlos Allendes told Reuters after the meeting.
