The Sindicato dos Metalúrgicos do Sul Fluminense union will call workers at Brazilian steelmaker Companhia Siderurgica Nacional (CSN) to decide whether they will start a strike or file a lawsuit over unpaid bonuses, a media report from Diario do Vale said.

The union claims CSN didn’t pay workers a share in the profits, known as the share of results program (PPR). As previously reported by SteelOrbis, ACSN reported a net profit of BRL 2.24 billion ($423.7 million), 57 percent down, year-on-year, in the full-year of 2019.

The union argues CSN should have paid the bonus on April 30.
