Delays Continue on Israel Railways

Delays continued to plague Israel Railways on Monday, after workers retreated from attempting to prevent the movement of trains Sunday on the new Rishon Lezion – Tel Aviv line. A large number of workers called in sick Monday, prompting Transport Ministry officials to say that it appeared that workers had decided to use this method to continue their protests. Union representatives of the workers denied the accusation.

Workers are demanding that the government back down from a plan to outsource maintenance and repair of train cars to a private organization.
