The World

The Danish Parliament approved an imposed strike settlement and ordered 300,000 private sector employees back to work from a week-old walkout and lockout that paralyzed the country's economy. The settlement calls for a 2% pay raise this year and 1.5% hike next year for private and public sector employees. It also calls for a cut in the 40-hour workweek to 39 hours for both sectors by January, 1987. The unions had demanded higher pay raises and a 35-hour workweek.
