Nueva Vizcaya mining firm ups workers’ benefits


KASIBU, Nueva Vizcaya: Officials of an Australian mining firm said they are currently in “deep talk” with a union to thresh out their differences resulting from the firm’s cost-cutting measures as the price of gold declined in the word market.

General Manager Brennan Lang of OceanaGold Philippines Inc. (OGPI) said they have started putting in place cost-cutting measures to remain profitable in the face of the 27-percent gold price depression in the world market over the past year.

The employees, in their January 20 assembly, voted to push through with their strike after the OGPI allegedly failed to give in to their demand for a P32 a day across-the-board wage increase.
