Top Haaretz reporters and columnists have argued against holding a strike to protest the potential firing of around 80 employees at the meeting inside the newspaper's headquarters on Wednesday.

One top reporter commented: "This extreme act will do more harm than good."

Another added: "Does anyone here really think the strike will stop the budget cuts by the management?"

It appears the Haaretz employees are still debating whether to hold an open ended strike, and plan to take a vote at the meeting.
