The World

March 19, 1987

Railway employees stopped work in the morning and evening rush hours to press for wage increases of 7% to 8%. The Socialist regime has recommended an inflation-linked 5% ceiling. Workers at the national mint in Toledo, who would print the bank notes for the increases, were on a three-day strike with similar demands and called new stoppages for next week.
