PM to Meet Histadrut Chief about Ports

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu is scheduled to meet Chairman Ophir Eini of the Histadrut Labor Federation, Monday, in an attempt to prevent a foreseen strike at the ports of Haifa and Ashdod over reform that is expected to harm the power of the workers' committees.

A similar meeting, last week, helped delay Eini's declaring a labor dispute, a precursor to a strike.
