Negotiations between representatives of Ben Gurion Airport employees and management failed on Monday and the airport workers announced a general strike, effective immediately.

Israel Airports Authority workers were requesting that management give them assurances that money saved for their pension funds will not be used for any other purposes.

The airport employees originally planned to strike on Thursday, but were persuaded by Transportation Minister Yisrael Katz not to strike in order to prevent the delay of Israelis coming home for Rosh Hashana.
