Metro Strike Delayed

MOSCOW -- An independent trade union of metro workers delayed for seven days a "warning" strike originally scheduled for Friday, union members said.

The move was made Friday after Moscow's Prosecutor General's Office promised to fulfill the workers' demands during a meeting with the small union's leaders. The workers are asking for better subway safety and working conditions, an investigation of the metro management's financial dealings and restoration of union members' rights.
