The Jerusalem Labor Court upheld an injunction late Sunday night ordering the Secondary Teachers' Association to resume all annual class trips effective Monday morning.

On Sunday a hearing was held in court to discuss the injunction filed jointly by the National Parents’ Association, the National Student and Youth Council, the Union of Local Authorities in Israel, and the Tel Aviv, Haifa and Jerusalem municipalities to prevent the teachers’ sanctions.

Last week the association announced it would renew its strike, effectively cancelling all field trips outside school premises beginning Sunday, March 1st until further notice.  

The Association initially announced the sanctions in January in an effort to place pressure on the Education Ministry to meet their demand that they not be liable for any criminal charges regarding the students' safety and wellbeing on school trips.
