      Eini: The Fight for the Contract Worker Has Just Begun

      Chairman Ofir Eini of the Histadrut Labor Federation said, Monday morning, "The struggle on behalf of contract laborers has only just begun." Marking the end of a four-hour general strike, he added, "We are determined to continue in order to reduce the phenomenon, and hope that the government and the employers will take advantage of the days that the court has given to conduct genuine and intensive negotiations and reach agreements."

      The Histadrut said, earlier in the day, that if no agreement is reached, there will be another general strike on Sunday.
