      Local Authorities Threaten Strike over Budget Cuts


      Municipal authorities are threatening to strike over the Finance Ministry's intent to carry out about 400 million shekels in cuts to their budgets.

      A task force comprised of the Center for Local Government and social-justice organizations is demanding an immediate meeting with the Treasury and the Interior Ministry. The Center for Local Government claims the anticipated cut will result in serious harm to the weak and middle classes.
