Hebrew University non-tenured staff in Humanities dept. to hold one day ‘warning’ strike

The non-tenured research and academic staff union of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem is set to hold a one day “warning” strike on Monday to protest the intended budget cuts to the Faculty of the Humanities.
 
As part of the strike, the non-tenured research and academic staff will not hold any classes, tutorials or lectures.  In addition, the Hebrew University student union will join in the protest to show solidarity with the non-tenured faculty.
 
The budget cuts would essentially lead to the dismissal of some 80 lecturers and faculty members in the Humanities fields and reduce the number of classes available to students in the humanities.
“We have no choice but to take this painful step. We continue to ask that the University will treat the organization as a partner for work relations and will not ignore its existence and see its members as weak workers,” said Esther Sarko, chairwoman of the union in a statement released Sunday.
