Cerrejón coal mine in Colombia reaches agreement with union to end 91-day strike

The Colombian coal mine Cerrejón and its largest union of workers reached an agreement on Monday to end a 91-day strike, the longest in history at the mining complex, and restart operations from Tuesday, the company reported. “The strike had started on August 31 after the parties failed to reach an agreement on wage increases and other health, education and housing benefits for workers. Cerrejón, owned in equal parts by BHP Group, Anglo American and Glencore, is an integrated mining and transportation complex in the department of La Guajira, in northeastern Colombia, which includes an open pit mine, a 150-kilometer railway line and a maritime port on the Caribbean Sea.
