They’re Back Working on the Railroad

Download PDF for this date

Railroad workers ended a nine-day strike Sunday following the Transport Ministry’s promise to ensure negotiations between workers and the government’s Ports and Railroad Administration.

The railroad workers committee, whose members have been fined heavily for failure to obey court summonses to call off the work stoppage, agreed to appeal to their members to return immediately to work.
