      Wildcat Strike of Israel RR Locomotive Drivers Today


      Over 35 locomotive drivers on Israel Railways called in sick in a wildcat strike to protest the changing of their work schedules which also adds to their work hours.

      Some trains may be cancelled as a result.

      The railway management reacted by saying that the drivers will face disciplinary sanctions for their one-sided action and sent doctors to some drivers' homes to check the medical condition of those who called in sick.
