SANTIAGO, April 5 (Reuters) - Workers at Chile's Angamos port are lifting their roughly three-week strike, and the larger work stoppage that has slammed copper, forestry and fruit exports in the world's top red metal producer will also end, a union leader told Reuters late on Friday.

Other ports in export-dependent Chile had joined the strike in the northern port of Angamos out of solidarity.
