Workers at Peru's Cerro Verde copper mine threaten fresh strike

LIMA, May 5 (Reuters) - Workers at Freeport-McMoRan’s Cerro Verde copper mine in Peru were evaluating a new strike on Friday, a union spokesman said, if the company continues with what the union says is punishment of those who took part in a previous strike in March.

If the company insisted on its plan to suspend workers without pay, then the union would consider a new, indefinite strike, union undersecretary Zenon Mujica told Reuters. The union is also preparing legal protection against the measures, he said.
