MANAUS WORKERS STRIKE: The BBC reported construction workers at the World Cup football stadium in Manaus have "gone on strike demanding better safety conditions." The builders' union "took the action after a worker fell" to his death on Saturday. The workers at Arena Amazonia said that "pressure to finish the construction is affecting their safety." Union leaders suggested that the "industrial action could be ended on Tuesday but work at high sectors of the stadium remains banned by a court order" (BBC, 12/16).
