Today in communications history: BT workers strike ends, 1987

Continuing the tale of the British Telecom workers strike of 1987

Not all strikes in the mid-late 80s ended badly…

A tentative contract agreement to end the two-week strike was reached on February 9th allowing for a 12.75% pay increase over two years, compared with the repairmen’s original request for a 10% increase.

The strike ended on February 11th 1987.
