SANTIAGO, June 14 (Reuters) - Workers at Chilean state-owned Codelco, the world's largest copper producer, threatened on Tuesday to go on a company-wide strike on Wednesday due to a lack of investment at the mining firm's troubled Ventanas smelter.

Codelco last week said it stopped its Ventanas smelter and refinery to carry out maintenance after authorities declared an environmental emergency in the region earlier in the week. (Reporting by Fabian Cambero; Writing by Anthony Esposito; Editing by Chris Reese)
