This article maps the emerging forms of labor struggles in the global mining industry. Using mineworkers’ mobilizations in Chile and Peru as examples, it shows how labor struggles develop in different manners in these two countries. In Chile, workers have moved towards national-level actions, whereas in Peru they have not been as interested in building such a network, often prioritizing their partnerships with local communities. Drawing on in-depth case studies in both countries, the article links the literature on social movements and labor geography to understand the transformation of labor struggles in Latin America.
