Paralegals Strike, Demonstrate at Supreme Court


Paralegals are set to strike their work in judges' offices and demonstrate outside the Supreme Court in Jerusalem on Monday.

Chairwoman Sarit Tobis of the national paralegal committee said, Sunday, that the state will take unilateral action within the next year to dismiss about 160 paralegals, most of them women and mothers, and limit the employment of the remaining paralegals to six months. She took the state to task for not responding to a court proposal for mediation.
