Solomon Islands teachers return to work after strike action

7:10 am on 31 July 2007

Solomon Islands teachers agreed to return to work yesterday after striking over a pay claim.

The Solomon Islands National Teachers Association's industrial officer, John Lee Hatimoana, said the teachers agreed to return to work after accepting government's assurance that it will meet their demands.

The union however has promised more action if the government delays the promised payments.
