Haifa port workers open labor dispute

August 14, 2012 18:30

The Haifa port's labor committee received authorization from the Histadrut Labor Federation on Tuesday to open a labor dispute, and could begin work disruptions in two weeks, Israel Radio reported.

The dispute centers around the National Building and Planning Council's decision to advance the creation of a shopping and leisure site at the port.

The head of the committee, Meir Turjerman, says some 30 percent of the port would be turned over for public use, which would disrupt the port's operations.
