Oil Workers, Petrobras Reach Deal; Strike Averted

Unionized workers at Brazil's Petrobras will not go on strike because the federal energy company met union requests, Jose Maria Rangel, director of the oil workers' federation, told BNamericas.

"The union spent the day assessing if the workers' requests were fulfilled and the result was pretty positive for everyone," the director said.

The union was threatening to hold a five-day strike after July 5 that would have halted oil and gas production.

FUP was protesting worker salaries and promotion plans.
