Dutch Electrical workers withdraw threat to turn off lights at soccer international

Dutch Electrical workers Saturday pulled the plug on their threat to plunge a Netherlands-Belarus European Championship qualifying match into darkness, Dutch media reported.The plan to cut power to the Philips Stadium in Eindhoven on Wednesday night to protest government proposals to open the electricity market to competition sparked outrage in this soccer-crazy country.
However, on Saturday the electrical workers' labor council said it would not leave soccer fans in the dark and had in fact never intended to do carry out the threat, national broadcaster NOS reported.
The labor council did not immediately return calls seeking comment.
