Workers at Southern Copper's (SCCO +1%) Cuajone and Toquepala copper mines and Ilo smelter in Peru prepare to go on strike Dec. 24 after the company refused to accept a request for a 15% annual pay rise, a union official says. SCCO, which is seeking a four-year deal, offered a 5.5% annual wage increase.
