Subway workers in Sao Paulo voted to suspend their strike pending a further meeting Wednesday, warning the stoppage could resume when the Brazilian mega-city hosts the World Cup kick-off.

“On the 11th we shall hold an assembly with a strike set for the 12th. Whether we put down tools or not will depend on the re-hiring of the 42 workers” fired for joining the protest, a meeting of metro union workers stated late Monday.
