Codelco reaches agreement with professionals at Ministro Hales mine

SANTIAGO (Reuters) - Chile’s state copper miner Codelco said on Thursday it had reached an agreement with the professionals’ union at its Ministro Hales mine in northern Chile, following early talks on a new collective labor contract.

The 36-month contract, which includes a signing bonus of 7.1 million pesos ($11,600), was approved by 75 percent of the union, Codelco said in a statement.

Ministro Hales had production of around 215,000 tonnes of copper in 2017.

Codelco is the world’s No. 1 copper producer.
