RFO workers in Wallis seek mediation to end strike

2:14 pm on 28 May 2004

Union workers of the French broadcaster RFO in Wallis and Futuna have asked for a mediator to help end their strike, which is in its third week.

Representatives of the unions involved in the industrial action have sent a letter to their employer and made its contents public.

The joint unions say talks aimed at resolving the dispute, about pay claims, have so far failed to come to anything.

The RFO station in the French territory employs 55 workers.
