Violence Halts Freeportís Production in Papua


Freeport McMoRan has suspended operations at its gold and copper mine
in eastern Indonesia due to fighting among its employees.

Company spokesman Ramdani Sirait says it suspended operations on
Thursday because some workers who took part in a strike have been
committing acts of violence and intimidation against supervisors and
workers who didnít strike.

But union official Juli Parorongan says both sides are to blame for
violence that has left several workers injured.

Sirait said on Sunday that the company was working with local
authorities and union officials to resolve the issue.

Some 8,000 unionized employees walked off their jobs for four months
last year demanding pay hikes. They ended their strike in December
after getting a 37 percent raise and improved benefits.
