Jerusalem Petitions Court to End Rail Strike

The Jerusalem municipality filed a petition against the operators of the Jerusalem light rail and the Histadrut Labor Federation in the Jerusalem District Labor Court, Sunday evening, demanding that engineers be ordered to get back to their regular schedule.

The engineers struck the light rail Sunday morning, without warning, over working conditions. To make up for the lost service, extra buses were put on the streets.
