Gold Resource Corporation Sustained Temporary Arista Mine Protest
Approximately 80 to 100 union members protested and ultimately blocked access to the Aguila Project’s mill and mine on Thursday, May 27. The majority of the Company’s 300 plus unionized workers and all of the non-unionized workers chose not to participate in this illegal protest. The protest was in response to the annual employee bonus being less than the year prior, which is a reflection of the continued weakness in precious and base metal prices. The union did not condone or support this illegal protest, therefore technically the action has not been classified as a strike.
