      MK: Govt. Declaring War on Workers

      MK Dov Henin (Hadash) accused the government of “declaring war on workers” Tuesday in response to a proposal that would prohibit most strikes in the public service sector. The proposal would also get rid of labor courts, leaving labor disputes to be resolved in the regular court system.

      “In order for workers to be able to fight for their rights tomorrow, they have to fight today for their right to do so,” he declared.

      The proposal would prohibit nearly all strikes in public service professions deemed “vital services,” and would require workers to first attempt mediation.
