British workers called on to stay away for a day

Britain's labor unions have called on 12 million workers to stay away from their jobs today (May 14) in a one-day protest action, but according to an opinion poll, 73 percent of union members oppose the move.

Mrs. Thatcher called on British workers Tuesday to stay at their jobs.
