      Report: Rail Strike Possible Sunday

      Employees of Israel Railways could strike Sunday, according to a Friday report by Israel Defense Forces Radio.

      At issue is a dispute over maintenance of the trains. The workers claim that if maintenance is turned over to the company that makes the rolling stock, it won't be done by professionals and employees of the railroad will lose their jobs.
