Strike at Shougang Peru mine enters fifth day

LIMA, Oct 2 (Reuters) - A strike of some 1,200 workers at Shougang Hierro Peru (SHP.LM), a unit of China’s Shougang Group, entered its fifth day on Friday with no end in sight, union leaders said.

“We don’t see a solution, there’s no dialogue with the company,” said Julian Sulca, a union official.

Company officials were not immediately available for comment on the strike at Peru’s only iron ore mine.

Workers at the Marcona mine in southern Peru say the company isn’t fulfilling a labor contract struck last July that raised daily wages. ($1 = 2.9 soles) (Reporting by Marco Aquino; Editing by David Gregorio)
