Bermuda and its unions agree to settle strike

Government and union negotiators have settled a strike by government workers that had mushroomed into a general strike on the British tourist paradise island.

The strike by 1,150 blue-collar government workers and nonmedical hospital employees for higher wages set off sympathy walkouts among nearly 6,000 other workers, many employed in the tourism industry, from which the island draws two-thirds of its revenues. Most of the island's major hotels closed because of the str ike and the tourists were sent home, costing Bermuda millions of dollars.
