December 25, 2011 22:35

The Histadrut labor federation launched a fresh bid Sunday to hold a general strike over the employment status of contract workers, telling the National Labor Court that negotiations between it and the Treasury have reached a dead end.

Following a meeting between National Labor Court President Nili Arad and representatives of the Histadrut, Treasury, Federation of Israeli Economic Organizations and Union of Local Authorities to assess the labor federation’s request, the court decided to schedule a hearing on January 8th, 2012 over the Histadrut's request to strike. In the meantime, Judge Arad asked the parties to file their written arguments to the court.
