It has not yet been defined by the union whether the strike could interrupt operational activities in the Campos or Santos Basin

The coordinator of the Single Federation of Petroleum Workers (FUP), José Maria Rangel, convened yesterday (Thursday-5), the oil industry to hold assemblies on Friday, 06th, in the morning, to deliberate on the possibility of a national strike against the political imprisonment of former president Lula. “The gravity of the moment demands tough decisions. That is why we are advising all oil workers and oil companies and union leaders to be at the units tomorrow morning, holding assemblies to deliberate on a possible stoppage, in case the arrest of former president Lula comes to pass”, says the FUP coordinator.

“We cannot accept that the best president in the history of this country, the president who took Petrobras to a degree never seen before in the history of this company, discovering the pre-salt layer, reactivating the naval industry, generating jobs, income and technology for the country, be arrested for conclusions”, emphasizes José Maria Rangel, directing workers who are off duty to look for the nearest units of the Petrobras System and join the assemblies.
