  1. Zambian copper miners’ strike

    Miners at the Kansanshi mine, near the copper belt town of Chingola, went on strike on Tuesday, demanding a 100 percent pay increase. The wildcat action took place as management was in negotiations with the union.

    Kansanshi is a subsidiary of the Canadian-owned First Quantum mining company. The mine is Zambia’s largest copper mine, producing nearly a quarter of a million tonnes in 2010. Kansanshi spokesman Godfrey Msiska denounced the strike as illegal.
