Sao Paulo’s metro workers voted to stay off work for a fifth day on Monday even after a court declared the strike illegal, complicating preparations for the World Cup opening match. Another vote on the strike was scheduled for Monday at 1 p.m local time, after a rally in downtown Sao Paulo in which they will be joined by homeless’ workers and other social movements. Metro workers’ demand a 12 percent pay rise, but Metro has offered 8.7 percent. The strike snagged several FIFA officials in over two hours of traffic as they arrived for a conference ahead of the World Cup last week.
