SAO PAULO, Brazil -- Workers at a World Cup stadium in the jungle city of Manaus are threatening to go on strike to demand better conditions following a third recent death at the venue.
The strike could further delay the completion of the Arena da Amazonia stadium just months before football's showcase tournament.
A union leader says the stoppage will begin Monday to "guarantee the workers' rights."
A 55-year-old Portuguese man was killed in an accident on Friday while disassembling a crane that was used to install the stadium's roof, becoming the third worker to die at the venue in less than a year.
The Arena da Amazonia is one of the five stadiums still under construction for the World Cup. Organizers say it was nearly completed when Friday's accident happened.
