Unionized workers at Southern Copper's (SCCO) Cuajone and Toquepala mines and its Ilo smelter and refinery in Peru go on strike to back demands for salary increases. The union says the two-day walkout is a warning to the company; if no new contract is reached, then a general, indefinite strike will start Jan. 15.
