Rishon Letzion-Tel Aviv Rail Line Opens


The Israel Railways line between Rishon Letzion and Tel Aviv opened, Sunday afternoon, after the employees committee of the railroad and the Histadrut Labor Federation decided to honor an order of the Tel Aviv District Labor Court to proceed with opening the line.

The union has appealed the order to the National Labor Court. By virtue of the opening of the line, the railroad withdrew its petition for contempt of court proceedings against the workers, who have engaged in sanctions since last week, primarily on the issue of outsourcing maintenance of the line's rolling stock to its manufacturers.
