IDF’s Civilian Workers in Work Dispute

The IDF’s civilian workers are beginning protest steps following a breakdown in negotiations between the IDF Workers’ Union and the Defense Ministry and IDF. As an initial protest measure, civilian workers will not work overtime.

Union officials said they would announce a new protest measure every one to two days as long as the dispute is not resolved. Workers whose service is tied to vital security needs will be exempt, they noted.
