The World

Picket lines were expected to come down at Mexico's first McDonald's restaurant as the company and a food handlers' union reached agreement to end an 18-day-old strike. The restaurant, located in an upper-middle-class suburb of Mexico City, opened in late October but was closed Dec. 3 when a labor union began picketing and demanding that the student workers join the union. The standoff was resolved when more than 200 McDonald's workers formed their own union on terms acceptable to the larger union.
