LUNDIN MINING ANNOUNCES NEW COLLECTIVE AGREEMENT WITH CANDELARIA AOS UNION
The Candelaria AOS Union, which represents approximately 550 workers at Lundin Mining Corp.'s Candelaria operations in Chile, has ratified a new 30-month collective agreement. The union has accepted the last formal offer, which was presented by Candelaria on Nov. 12, 2020.
The safe resumption of partial operations is being assessed while the Candelaria Mine Workers Union, representing approximately 350 workers, continues with its labour action. In the meantime, critical works continue to be executed to protect required on-site personnel, the operation and the environment.
Candelaria is committed to responsible, respectful and fair negotiations with the best interests of its workers and the sustainability of its business in mind. As part of the collective bargaining cycle, Candelaria is in the legislated negotiation process with the two supervisor unions, which combined represent approximately 230 associates. An agreement was reached with the LMC AOS Union during advanced negotiations in May, 2020.
