Southern Copper hopes to dissuade strike at Peru mines-CEO

SANTIAGO, April 3 (Reuters) - Southern Copper Corp hopes to dissuade workers at its Toquepala and Cuajone mines in Peru from carrying out a planned strike this month, the latest push by a labor union in the world’s second biggest copper producer to obtain a bigger share of profits, the company’s chief executive told Reuters.

Oscar Gonzalez added that the company expects the Peruvian government to issue a construction permit for its $1.4 billion Tia Maria copper project in 2017, following years of efforts aimed at shoring up support in towns where violent protests derailed it in 2015.
