Another Ben-Gurion Airport Strike on Tuesday


The Histadrut Labor Federation decided, Sunday, that there will be a general strike at Ben-Gurion International Airport, starting at 6:00 a.m. Tuesday in solidarity with Israeli airlines.

The decision followed the government's decision to sign the "open skies" agreement with the European Union to increase competition. Employees of the airlines fear layoffs as a result of the five-year deregulation program.
