      Strike at Sunfrost

      About 120 employees of the Sunfrost frozen foods company in Migdal Ha'emek, near Haifa, started a strike Tuesday morning, closing the company's gates and burning tires outside.

      The workers are protesting an impasse in negotiations on a collective bargaining agreement as it relates to salary and dismissal. They say management insists on firing workers arbitrarily, without consulting the workers' committee and its representatives at the Histadrut Labor Federation.
