RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Richmond sanitation workers have ended a brief strike over pay and benefits.

Media outlets report that the work stoppage began Tuesday morning and lasted several hours. More than 20 sanitation trucks were idled.

Both permanent and temporary workers participated in the walkout. They are seeking better pay, health care benefits and making temporary workers full time.

A leader of the workers, Mavis Green, says the workers and city officials have scheduled a meeting on Thursday.
