The Wall Street Journal: Brazil reaches deal to end 7-day truckers’ strike

SÃO PAULO — The Brazilian government reached a new agreement with truck drivers on Sunday to end a seven-day strike that left many businesses without vital supplies and most gas stations in the country without fuel.

The government has agreed to a discount in diesel prices that will be in place for 60 days and to sign a bill that will allow truckers not to pay toll on rear axles when not in use, among other concessions, Brazilian President Michel Temer said during a televised speech Sunday night.

This is the second agreement announced by the government in an attempt to end the strike.
