'Open Skies' Re-opens Labor Dispute

The Histadrut Labor Federation renewed, Tuesday, the labor dispute it declared in February involving the El Al, Arkia' and Yisrair airlines. The renewal of the dispute follows Monday's signing of an "open skies" agreement by Transportation Minister Yisrael Katz.

The union feels that by removing limits on flights to Israel by foreign carriers, the open skies agreement will mean fewer flights for domestic carriers, which will threaten jobs.
