Brazilian police and striking subway workers clashed early Monday in a central commuter station, with union officials threatening to maintain the work stoppage through the World Cup opening match being held here this week.Authorities are deeply worried about the strike because the subway is the main means of transportation for World Cup fans scheduled to attend Thursday's opening match when Brazil takes on Croatia. Riot police firing tear gas pushed about 100 striking workers out of the station as the strike threw Sao Paulo's normally congested traffic into chaos for a fifth day. A Sao Paulo labor court over the weekend fined the union $175,000 for the first four days of the strike and said it would add $220,000 for each additional day the work stoppage continued.
