Reuters reported that a union at Teck Resources' Quebrada Blanca copper mine rejected a contract offer from the Canadian miner, increasing the likelihood of a strike. As prr report either Teck or the 106-member union, which comprises 24 % of the mine's workforce, may still opt for a period of government-facilitated mediation before a strike begins.

Mr Jorge Flores, the president of the group, called Union 1 said that "The last offer by the company was rejected and a strike was approved with 92 percent of votes."

The mine's remaining unions earlier this year opted to extend their contract for 15 months, leaving negotiations until 2018.

Quebrada Blanca has produced 17,300 tonnes of copper so far this year.
