Labor Union Chief Summoned to Meet Prime Minister

Chairman Ophir Eini of the Histadrut Labor Federation was summoned, Sunday, to an evening meeting with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu.

Eini had scheduled a news conference to announce a general labor dispute - a precursor to a general strike - in response to the government's plan to privatize a number of its operations. The Histadrut announced that the news conference has been cancelled.
