Workers for the Municipal Company of Urban Cleaning (COMLURB) in Rio de Janeiro are planning to hold a 24-hour strike on Monday, April 22. The employees decided to strike after city officials only offered a 3.73 percent salary increase during negotiations. Associated demonstrations by the striking workers are possible, particularly around city hall. Heightened security measures and localized traffic disruptions are likely around any demonstrations.
Individuals in Rio de Janeiro are advised to monitor developments to the situation and avoid all demonstrations as a precaution.
