Workers at Shougang's iron mine in Peru start indefinite strike

LIMA, Sept 21 (Reuters) - Workers at iron miner Shougang Hierro Peru, a unit of China's Shougang Group , started an indefinite strike Monday to demand better wages, a union leader union said Monday.

The stoppage, which began at 0800 local time (1300 GMT), completely halted output at Shougang's mine in southern Peru, said Julio Ortiz, sub-secretary general of the union.
