Court rules Sao Paulo subway strike illegal

Court to rule on strike snarling World Cup city

Sao Paulo (AFP) - A Brazilian court ruled Sunday that a subway strike that has caused traffic mayhem in Sao Paulo and raised fears of transport chaos at the World Cup kick-off is illegal.

"The court ruled the strike was abusive. We are going to have an assembly (this afternoon) and vote whether to continue the strike or not," said union spokesman Thiago Marcelino Pereira.
