      Pelephone Workers Intensify Strike, Close Call Centers


      Pelephone employees plan to intensify the strike against management which began Monday and disable some call centers across the country Tuesday. As part of the strike, call centers in Jerusalem and Be'er Sheva will not work.

      At 10:00 a.m. Monday, engineering, information systems and administrative workers at the company's Giv'atayim headquarters went on strike. The workers are protesting management's refusal to recognize their organizing efforts, even though more than a third of the employees have joined the Histadrut Labor Federation. They said that sanctions planned for Monday were a first step and that they would take more serious steps with each passing day, as needed.
