Dec. 15 (Bloomberg) -- Freeport-McMoRan Copper & Gold Inc.’s Peruvian unit, which ended a 61-day strike last month, expects the government will settle a wage dispute on Dec. 27, a union official said.

Workers at Freeport’s Sociedad Minera Cerro Verde SAA unit, who returned to the mine Nov. 30, today ratified planned 48-hour strikes Dec. 24-25 and Dec. 31-Jan. 1 to pressure for a one-year wage increase, union official William Camacho said today in a telephone interview.
