Airport Strike ‘Irresponsible,’ Ministry Says

Finance Ministry officials criticized the Airport Workers Union on Tuesday for its decision to hold a sudden strike earlier in the day. “During one of the most stressful periods at the airport, the workers and managers decided to start sanctions at the expense of Israeli citizens,” they said.

“The strike, for no real reason, was completely irresponsible and was aimed at continuing a campaign of illegitimate pressure,” they added. Managers share responsibility for “not using legal measures to prevent workers from striking over and over,” they accused.
