Rail Disruptions Loom Again

Employees of Israel Railways will, once again, disrupt freight and passenger service over a plan announced by management and the Treasure to contract maintenance of the line's rolling stock to outside workers in two weeks. The employees will disrupt freight service on Friday with different sanctions against passenger service starting at midnight, Sunday evening.

There will be no service until Monday evening at midnight. A repeat of the scenario is planned for Wednesday and Friday. Tuesday and Thursday traffic is scheduled to be normal.
