Brazil oil workers push back Petrobras strike date to Monday
RIO DE JANEIRO, Sept 4 (Reuters) - Brazil's largest oil workers union said on Friday that it has delayed the start of a planned open-ended strike against Petrobras to Monday, Sept. 7, putting off a campaign against planned budget cuts and asset sales at the state-run oil company.
The union which had at first set Friday as the first date of a possible job action later shifted the possible start of the strike to Sunday, only to inform Petrobras that a strike could now start at anytime after 0:01 (0301 GMT) on Monday.
Officials at Petroleo Brasileiro SA, as Petrobras is formally known, were not immediately available for comment. (Reporting by Jeb Blount; Editing by Andrew Hay)
