      Airport Authority Joins Petition Against Strike


      The Airport Authority decided, Monday morning, to join the petition of the Manufacturers' Association for a restraining order against a general strike called for Tuesday morning at Ben-Gurion International Airport.

      A general strike would represent expansion of sanctions started on Sunday by employees of El Al, Arkia and Yisrair against the newly-signed "open skies" agreement with the European Union which, they claim, will result in massive layoffs. If the National Labor Court sides with the Airport Authority and the Manufacturers' Association, the employees will have to work as usual on Tuesday.
