The Nation

July 10, 1986

Philadelphia officials asked a court to force 850 striking health workers back to work as a nine-day strike by 14,000 municipal employees kept thousands of tons of garbage piling up on city streets. A hearing was set for today. Mayor W. Wilson Goode, in a television address, said that the city would hold firm against "unreasonable" demands by the workers. Meanwhile, a rupture in a water line left about 20,000 homes and businesses in West Philadelphia with little or no water.
