      Sanctions Close Banias, Tel Dan until 1:00 PM

      The Banias and Tel Dan nature reserves in northern Israel will be closed until 1:00 p.m. Tuesday under sanctions by employees which started on Monday, about 10 weeks after they declared a labor dispute against the Nature and Parks Authority.

      The Histadrut Labor Federation says the workers are protesting what they call management's ignoring labor agreements and unilateral actions which, they say, demonstrate utter insensitivity to the rights of the workers.
