Drummond Miners in Colombia Return to Work, Ending 53-Day Strike

Coal miners have returned to work at Drummond Co.’s Colombia operations, ending a 53-day strike and enabling coal exports to European power producers including Electricite de France SA to restart.

Work resumed at Drummond’s port and Pribbenow and El Descanso coal mines in northern Colombia late September 14, after a government statement a day earlier said an arbitration tribunal would resolve the long-running dispute over pay and work conditions.
