Union at Chile's Escondida mine threatens strike unless changes made to offer

SANTIAGO, July 12 (Reuters) - The union for Chile’s Escondida copper mine said Thursday a contract offer presented by the company was unacceptable and threatened to strike unless changes were made.

The mine, controlled by BHP, is in the middle of labor negotiations after workers extended the current contract last year, following a 44-day strike.

“This proposal is unacceptable and if there is no substantial change, the union will be forced to vote for a strike, opening the way again to a conflict, “ the union said in a statement.
