The Israel Land Administration will officially become the Israel Land Authority as part of extensive reforms announced by Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Wednesday.

The passing of the authority to government control was made possible after Netanyahu signed a collective agreement at his Jerusalem office on Wednesday, alongside Finance Minister Yuval Steinitz, Housing and Construction Minister Ariel Atias and Histadrut labor federation chairman Ofer Eini.

Under the agreement, which was approved by the authority’s workforce, ILA employees will be given a one-off grant of NIS 30,000, and wages will grow by around 20 percent to a range of between NIS 5,500 to NIS 15,850.
