Histadrut Leader to Meet with Channel 10 Workers C'tee


Chairman Ofir Eini of the Histadrut Labor Federation is scheduled to convene a special meeting, Tuesday morning, with the workers' committee of Channel 10 Television to discuss ways of avoiding shutting down the station. Last week, the board of directos approved the dismissal of a quarter of the station's staff as a way to help reduce the station's 45-million-shekel debt.

Eini's Monday-night meeting with Channel 10 management and Finance Minister Yuval Steinitz ended without results. Eini refused to accept Steinitz's proposal of a two-month delay in collecting the station's debt.
