Workers for Golan Telecom on Monday went on strike in protest of the potential sale to rival Cellcom, The Jerusalem Post's sister paper Maariv reported Monday.

The workers, concerned that the sale would lead to layoffs, said the strike was indefinite. Monday's strike follows a 24-hour strike on Thursday.

The potential sale has to be approved by regulators including the Antitrust Authority, but Finance Minister Moshe Kahlon said he will take whatever steps possible to block the sale, which he says will reduce competition in the cellular market.

Golan was created in the aftermath of reforms Kahlon initiated as Communications Minister.
