Workers end strike after protest

FIFA Secretary General Jerome Valcke concedes FIFA still has concerns over a number of 2014 FIFA World Cup venues in Brazil
The delivery of the Arena da Amazonia World Cup Stadium has been postponed once again.

SAO PAULO -- Workers have ended a strike at the World Cup stadium in the southern Brazilian city of Curitiba after disrupting traffic for nearly two hours and forcing organizers to accept their demands.

More than 100 workers are returning to work at the Arena da Baixada after organizers promised to begin paying the salaries owed to them.

The workers had blocked streets outside the stadium on Thursday, causing problems to drivers trying to get to work in the region.

About 50 workers had been on strike since Monday and more joined the movement in recent days, threatening to halt construction at the already delayed venue and raising concerns about whether it could be finished in time for the tournament.

Curitiba officials said the work stoppage did not significantly affect the stadium's renovation.
