The World : Strike Ends in Yugoslavia

May 13, 1987

Yugoslav miners on strike for 33 days at the Rasa coal pits returned to work after having been promised a 46.5% pay increase and some management changes. State-controlled news media reported no disruptions on the first full shift since the start of one of the Communist nation's longest work stoppages. The miners had demanded a 100% wage increase, retroactive to Jan. 1, and the resignation of the entire management when they walked off the job last month. The mine is 148 miles southwest of Zagreb, in northwestern Yugoslavia.
