Strike in Denmark
In Denmark more than 560,000 workers - a quarter of the
national workforce -walked off the job April 27 after
rejecting a pay deal proposed by the employers association.
Factory production, transport, construction work, and
garbage collection were largely halted, in a work stoppage
that is expected to last at least a week. This is the first
large-scale strike in Denmark since 1985. Next week's
Militant will carry a first hand report from the picket
lines. Above, strikers rally in Copenhagen Town Hall Square.
