Latin Unionists Freed; Workers Return to Jobs

Associated Press

About 6,000 Social Security workers have ended a monthlong strike after the government freed two of their union leaders arrested Sunday when police stormed the main Social Security hospital and other health institutions in an effort to end the strike.

Four police officers were killed in the raid, apparently by other officers in the confusion.

After the two leaders were released, the workers agreed late this week to return to their jobs while other demands, including higher wages, are being discussed.
