Reuters reported that the union of workers at Chile’s Collahuasi copper mine has come to an agreement in labor talks with the mine operator, staving off the threat of a strike at the sprawling deposit. Union president Mr Felipe Román told Reuters "We have reached a collective agreement with the company to the satisfaction of both parties."

The new contract takes effect on November 1.

The talks at Collahuasi, a partnership between Glencore and Anglo American with Japanese firms, were widely seen as the most sensitive of 2020 in top copper producer Chile, both because of the size of the union involved and the mine´s importance to the country’s total output.

Collahuasi is one of Chile´s largest mines. It produced 565,400 tonnes of copper in 2019.
