July 06, 1986

Philadelphia police arrested eight striking workers outside a city water treatment plant and charged them with blocking the entrance to the plant in violation of a federal judge's order limiting picketing activities. The arrests came just hours after City Managing Director James White asked union officials in a strongly worded letter to stop "senseless violence." Meanwhile, as a strike by 15,400 city workers dragged into its fifth day, Mayor W. Wilson Goode announced plans to offer striking workers a 12% wage increase over three years and increased health and welfare payments when the two sides meet for talks Monday.
