Chile's Escondida mine workers reject contract offer, may strike -document

SANTIAGO, July 27 (Reuters) - Workers at Chile’s Escondida copper mine, the world’s largest, have rejected the company’s final contract offer and agreed to vote on whether to go on strike, according to an internal union document seen by Reuters on Friday.

After several meetings in recent days, the workers at the mine owned by BHP concluded that the company’s offer does not meet union demands and creates “prejudicial” labor conditions, according to the document. Chile is the world’s largest producer and exporter of copper. (Reporting by Antonio de la Jara Writing by Luc Cohen Editing by Shri Navaratnam)
