#AceWorldNews says Workers at a Brazilian world cup stadium, located in the northern city of Manaus, are threatening strike action after a third construction employee died at the site.
The workers are demanding better conditions. “We have to guarantee the workers’ rights and their safety,” union leader, Cicero Custodio, told local press after the death of a 55-year-old worker.
However, any strikes could suspend the Arena da Amazonia’s completion in a critical period. Brazil stated that all 12 World Cup venues would be completed by the end of last year, leaving enough time before June, when the first official round of matches begins.
