Palestinian UN Workers Strike in West Bank Over Pay - 2004-10-11


At least 5,000 Palestinian aid workers employed by the United Nations have gone on a labor strike.

Workers for the U.N.'s Palestinian refugee aid agency (UNRWA) say they want higher pay and better benefits.

The strike suspends medical and aid services to thousands of Palestinians living in refugees camps across the West Bank and Gaza.
