A trade union said on Wednesday that it will press Indonesia’s government to reinstate thousands of striking workers at Freeport-McMoRan Inc’s Grasberg mine when union officials visit the Southeast Asian country next week. IndustriALL Global Union said in an emailed statement that it would formally announce plans on Thursday for its mission to support striking workers at Grasberg, the world’s second-largest copper mine, and a smelter jointly owned and operated by Freeport and Mitsubishi Materials.
