SAO PAULO, Brazil (Dow Jones) -- Sindaport, a union representing administrative workers at Brazil's port of Santos, voted late Friday night against going on strike and will instead continue talks over wages and other issues, a spokeswoman said Saturday morning.

Leaders from the union, which also represents port security and other categories of workers, met last week with government and port authority officials and failed to reach an agreement.

A strike by Sindaport could stop loading and unloading of cargoes, the Sindaport spokeswoman said.

The port authority declined to comment.
