Rio de Janeiro Airport Workers Suspend Strike Before Cup

Rio de Janeiro airport workers suspended a strike today after a court ordered them to return to work.

The strike didn’t result in canceled or delayed flights, according to the press offices of government-run airport management company Infraero and the Brazilian airline association, ABEAR. Seventy percent of airline workers such as check-in and airplane maintenance employees remained on the job along with 80 percent of baggage handlers, the airlines’ union said yesterday.
