Members of the United Steelworkers Union (USW) will vote on Sunday on whether to stage a walkout at Canadian diversified miner Teck Resources’ Highland Valley Copper mine.
About 1 050 workers said they have been working without a collective agreement in place since last year, and now against a backdrop of higher copper prices and strong fundamentals for the red metal going forward, the USW workers are kicking against Teck’s demands for concessions from the workers, USW staff representative and lead negotiator Randy Gatzka said in a statement on Friday.
