November 29, 1987

Employees of Israel's state-owned television and radio agreed to resume broadcasts after a 52-day strike, the longest in the network's history. The 1,600 strikers, including 900 reporters, agreed to return to work after management said it would submit a wage dispute to an arbitration board by Dec. 15, Israel Broadcasting Authority officials said. The employees struck Oct. 7, demanding 10% wage increases. The journalists also demanded salaries equal to those of newspaper reporters who earn an average of $600 a month.
