National Labor Court President Nili Arad postponed to Sunday afternoon a closed-door deliberation on the Histadrut labor federation’s request to hold a general strike over the employment status of contract workers.

Arad’s meeting with the Histadrut, Finance Ministry, Union of Local Authorities and employers was originally set for Thursday. The Histadrut told the court that more than one month of negotiations had failed to bridge differences between it and the Finance Ministry.
