February 24, 2012

Feb. 24 (Bloomberg) -- Workers at Freeport-McMoRan Copper & Gold Inc.’s Grasberg mine in Indonesia will continue to stop working until the company pays them the new increased wages as agreed under a deal in December that ended their three-month strike, Virgo Solossa, head of organizational affairs at the union representing the employees, said by telephone today.

Workers who joined the strike were not paid the increased wages, Solossa said. They also demanded the company replace officials in charge of operations at Grasberg, he said.
