The Ben Gurion Airport employees' strike ended on Monday after nine hours of disruption.

The workers union came to an agreement with Treasury and Transportation Ministry representatives to secure employee pensions.

Israel Airports Authority will transfer the pension money to a trust fund within 60 days as part of the agreement.

"I'm happy we could secure the pension funds for the workers and retirees," a senior Histadrut labor federation official stated. "It's a shame that we had to strike and that the government did not resolve the matter sooner, the official continued.

According to the Histadrut all the workers' demands were met in full.
