A worker walks at the construction site of Port of Acu in Sao Joao da Barra March 11, 2013. Workers extended a strike at the OSX Brasil SA shipyard at Brazil’s Port of Acu for a second day on Wednesday, delaying construction and blockading an industrial complex owned by Brazilian billionaire Eike Batista. The blockade by the shipyard employees is the latest in a string of troubles for Batista’s sprawling energy and logistics empire, and has led to nearly all of the 8,500 workers at the giant port complex to stop work, union officials said. The striking workers allege Acciona failed to pay wages and provided substandard work conditions at the shipyard site. Picture taken on March 11, 2013.
