The Histadrut labor federation's coordination and implementation committee declared a labor dispute Thursday morning over individual contracts at local authorities and government and civil service offices.

A labor dispute opens up the possibility of organized protests and strikes after 14 days.

The Histadrut says it is calling the dispute to protest Finance Ministry foot-dragging on negotiations over individual contracts that Histadrut chairman Ofer Eini and Finance Minister Yuval Steinitz agreed to in a February 2012 deal.

The NIS 800 million deal, which ended a general strike over contract workers that shut down government offices and banks, and hindered the operation of public transportation and trash collection, included a provision to continue intensive negotiations on the issue of individually contracted workers within a year.
