Treasury Makes Better Offer to the Histadrut


The Treasury on Tuesday night made a better offer to the Histadrut labor union regarding the wages for contract workers.

As part of the offer the Treasury announced that it will allocate another 200 million shekels to increase wages and improve social conditions for cleaning workers who are employed as contract workers. Minister Yuval Steinitz and Histadrut chairman Ofer Eini are expected to meet all night trying in an attempt to reach an agreement and avoid the expected general strike.
