Workers say Escondida strike to end as they opt to return to old contract

ANTOFAGASTA, March 23 (Reuters) - The strike at Escondida, the world’s largest copper mine, will end after workers decided to invoke a legal provision that allows them to extend their old contract, three workers told Reuters after leaving a union meeting on Thursday.

The workers said they will present their decision to the government on Friday and will return to work Saturday at Escondida, operated by BHP Billiton . (Reporting by Felipe Iturrieta)
