Workers at Chile's Escondida, the world’s largest copper mine by production, rejected the owner BHP’s proposal to resolve the labor dispute, saying that they would go on strike on November 28 and 30 if their demands are not met.

BHP said earlier that it had reached an agreement with the workers union to avoid strike action at the mine due to safety concerns, but the agreement must be approved by the workers represented by the union Sindicato 1.

However, the union said its members thought the proposed security measures are insufficient and wanted to take concrete and verifiable measures such as joint inspections of work areas.
