Reuters reported that the biggest union at the Cerrejon coal mine in Colombia pulled back from launching a previously approved strike over the weekend and withdrew its demands regarding pay raises and other benefits. The decision by union Sintracarbon extends previously agreed benefits with the company until June 30 this year. An initial 20 days of new negotiations will begin in May.

The union had until midnight on Saturday to declare the start of a strike at the northern mine, which members had voted to support on March 16.

If there is no agreement at the new talks, the union must once again call on members to vote between strike action or arbitration.

Sintracarbon had accused Cerrejon of looking to cut costs by freezing, reducing and eliminating employee benefits.
