RIO DE JANEIRO, May 30 (Reuters) - The FUP oil workers union in Brazil said on Wednesday that workers joined the call for a nationwide strike on at least 20 oil rigs in lucrative Campos basin, along with several other areas around the country.
The 72-hour strike was called to protest the fuel pricing policies of Petroleo Brasileiro SA and to demand the resignation of chief executive Pedro Parente. The state-led firm said in a statement that there were no production losses so far. It said contingency crews took over operations at these units, keeping output stable.
