Strike at 'Haaretz'

Employees of the Haaretz daily started an open-ended strike Tuesday, demonstrating outside the newspapers meeting rooms in protest of management's refusal to present its detailed program of budget cuts. The board of directors is scheduled to meet there, Tuesday to discuss dismissals.

The employees also want management to formulate an emergency plan for increasing revenues and to extend its offer of voluntary retirement to journalists.
