Puerto Rico phone strike to end

Union officials at the Puerto Rico telephone company say they have reached an agreement to end their thirty-seven day-long strike over plans to sell the company to a United States firm.

Officials say the terms of the deal will not be made public until they are submitted to union members on Tuesday.

The strikers said that the ownership of the telephone company was an issue of national identity.
