The government will abstain from implementing the reform during the talks, and the union will immediately cease internal sanctions at the Israel Electric Company.




Histadrut Chairman Ofer Eini, Finance Ministry Budget Supervisor Kobi Haber and Government Company Authority Director Eyal Gabbai have agreed on a working outline for the structural transformation of Israel's electricity market following a week of talks, the labor union and Finance Ministry said Tuesday in a joint statement. By December 7, the sides will hold "intensive" talks on the reform's implementation and workers' rights, with the option of continuing talks for another month at a more senior level if gaps remain, according to the agreement. The government will abstain from implementing the reform during the talks, and the union will immediately cease internal sanctions at the Israel Electric Company.
