Emergency Mediation Meeting Called by Min. of Economy and Hadera Paper


The Ministry of Economy summoned both employees and management of Hadera Paper Ltd. today (Thursday) to an urgent meeting in Tel Aviv in order to mediate between the parties due to the prolonged strike by the employees due to salary cutbacks, and forcing the plant's shutdown by management. The workers persist in their demand that the company CEO end the shutdown and restore their livelihoods.

In a statement this morning (Thursday) by Chairman of the Hadera Employees Union, Adi Hananov, he said, "I hope that Ofer Bloch will have the wisdom to listen to the employees and stop the destruction of a plant they have helped create for the past 60 years."
