Egypt's military rulers call to end labor unrest

CAIRO — Egypt's ruling military council on Monday issued a new communique calling on labor leaders to stop strikes and protests to allow a sense of normalcy to return to the country.
The communique, read out by a military spokesman on state television, came as thousands of state employees, from ambulance drivers to police and transport workers, protested Monday to demand better pay and conditions.
Egypt is in the midst of a growing wave of labor unrest unleashed by the uprising that ousted Hosni Mubarak from the presidency on Friday.
