Railway Workers' Boss Suspended


Chairwoman Galia Edrei of the workers' committee of the Israel Railways was suspended by management for three months, Sunday, for allegedly threatening members of management during sanctions about a month ago. Edrei, who was reprimanded and warned, did not take an active part in the hearing after witnesses did not testify and the management depended on signed statements. The committee ordered other workers not to take part in the hearing.

The workers claim that management is taking unilateral steps to privatize the line and bring in contract workers.
