RIO DE JANEIRO, Sept 3 (Reuters) - Brazil's main oilworkers union federation FUP said on Thursday it has delayed a planned open-ended strike against state-run oil company Petroleo Brasileiro SA until Sunday at the earliest.

Previously the union, as is required by law, notified Petrobras, as the oil company is known, that a strike could start as early as 0:00 Friday morning (0300 GMT), the press office said. (Reporting by Jeb Blount; Editing by Chris Reese)
