Hospital Staff Strike




MOSCOW -- More than 60 workers at a hospital in the Far East went on a hunger strike Tuesday to demand months of back pay, Itar-Tass said.


The 64 hospital employees in the remote village of Plastun have not been paid in nine months, but will continue to treat patients, Itar-Tass reported.


Plastun is located about 6,600 kilometers east of Moscow on Russia's Pacific coastline.
