Colombian coal mine union sets deal to avoid strike

Wednesday, March 16, 2016

Union workers at Colombia's largest coal mine Cerrejon reached a deal with the company over wages and benefits that avoided a strike, both sides said late on Tuesday.

A strike at the Cerrejon mine in northern Colombia, which in 2015 produced 33.2 million tonnes of coal, or 38.8 percent of Colombia's total output, would have come at an inopportune time for the country, which is experiencing a commodity-related economic slowdown.
