      Another Attempt to Stop Train Strike


      Chairman Avi Nissenkorn of the Histadrut Labor Federation's professional-union branch is scheduled to meet at 5:00 p.m. Monday with Chief Executive Officer Boaz Tzafrir of Israel Railways in an attempt to reach a solution to the crisis at the railroad. A strike against the line is scheduled to start Tuesday on the issue of outsourcing maintenance of the railroad's rolling stock and Sunday evening's suspension of workers' committee chairwoman Gila Edrei.

      Joining the meeting in progress will be Histadrut Chairman Ofir Eini and Israel Railways Chairman Uri Yogev.
