Histadrut: No Treasury Change Means No Talks

The Histadrut Labor Federation announced, Sunday evening, that there were no results from a hearing at the National Labor Court on the Histadrut's plans to hold a general strike as part of its demand to transfer labor contracted through personnel agencies to the payrolls of the bodies that hire them, including the government.

The union said it would not continue to talk without a change in the position of Finance Minister Yuval Steinitz.
