National Labor Court President Nili Arad instructed the Histadrut labor federation and Treasury representatives on Sunday to report back after another week of negotiations over the employment status of contract workers.

The decision was the result of a closed-door meeting held after the Histadrut submitted a request last week to hold a fresh general strike over the issue. Representatives for the Union of Local Authorities and Federation of Israeli Economic Organizations also participated in the meeting.

The labor federation told the court that more than one month of negotiations had failed to bridge differences between it and the Treasury.  The Histadrut is demanding contract workers be moved into direct employment. The Treasury has offered to improve the labor conditions of contract workers, but rejects discontinuing the use of cleaning and security contract companies altogether.
