Court rules against strike snarling World Cup city

Commuters are seen at the Ana Rosa station during a Metro workers strike, in Sao Paulo, Brazil, on June 6, 2014A court on Sunday ordered Sao Paulo subway workers to pay a daily fine if they continue a strike threatening to disrupt the World Cup’s opening game in Brazil’s biggest city. The ruling came as more teams arrived in Brazil, with Germany greeted by several hundred people at its northeastern base and England landing in the picturesque city of Rio de Janeiro. Eighteen of the 32 teams are now on the ground, including the hosts, but the chaos gripping Sao Paulo — the latest in a wave of strikes and protests ahead of the tournament — has distracted the usually passionate footballing nation from the World Cup build-up. “The court ruled the strike was abusive,” said union spokesman Thiago Marcelino Pereira.
