Strike Strands Ships: The nationwide action begun Thursday by 7,000 seamen and dock workers of the Maritime Union of Australia is to protest what members fear will be a selloff of government-owned shipping interests.

Late Friday, the government invited union officials to meet with Prime Minister Paul Keating today.
