      Employment Service Strike Suspended Wednesday

      Chairman Opher Levi of the Employment Service workers' committee told a Knesset subcommittee, Tuesday, that the union will suspend its sanctions and open Employment Service doors to the public on Wednesday so as not to harm new members of the public who are joining the circle of job seekers. The committee is dealing with the implementation of the Economics Ministry's Ma'agalei Ta'asukah (Circles of Employment) program. The workers say that management is taking unilateral steps to implement the program.

      Levi told the committee that management was acting like a bully. He said the workers want to work in peace, without the work and privatization plans that are frequently placed before them. He said significantly disproportional sums have been withheld from their salaries because of the sanctions.
