Court Asks Histadrut for Strike Details

The National Labor Court gave the Histadrut Labor Federation until Thursday to present detailed information about the extent of its general strike about the phenomenon of contract labor. The order came after the union and the government failed to reach agreement on eliminating the use in the public and private sector of employees contracted through personnel agencies who have no job security and no social benefits.

The two sides are scheduled to address the strike proposal a week from Thursday, and the following Sunday, an expanded court panel will discuss the proposal. Ahead of this Thursday's submission of the proposal, the Histadrut will conduct internal discussions on the matter.
