Interior Ministry Office in Natzrat Illit on Strike

The employees of the Interior Ministry in the Galilee city of Natzrat Ilit (Upper Nazareth) started an open-ended strike, Tuesday, over the refusal of the Treasury to transfer them to an alternative building agreed upon by management, the workers' committee and the Histadrut Labor Federation.

The Histadrut claims that in the last six years, 20 of the 64 employees have developed cancer as a result of a giant antenna located next to the office. The union also claims firefighting deficiencies in the building housing the office.
