Brazil unions stage nationwide protests

Tens of thousands of workers across Brazil have walked off their jobs and taken to the streets in a nationwide strike demanding better working conditions and improved public services in Latin America’s biggest nation.

Metalworkers, transportation and construction workers and civil servants adhered to the “Day of Struggle” organised by the country’s five leading labour federations on Thursday.

Strikers either partially or completely blocked 40 interstate and intercity highways in 14 states.
