Students Welcome Strike-Ending Pact


Chairman Itzik Shmuli of the National Students Union said, Sunday evening that "the agreement achieved by the Histadrut Labor Federation will significantly improve the conditions of contract workers both in the public sector and the private sectorYou can not eradicate the problem which reached the greatest proportions in the Western world in one day but the mere fact that employment of a contracted employee in place of another whom the government refused to employ directly  will help significantly in curbing and eradicating the phenomenon."

Mulli added, "The fight for direct employment is a long struggle which we will continue to conduct insistently on our campuses and beyond."
