The National Labor Court lifted an injunction against a general strike declared by the Histadrut labor federation as part of a dispute over the status of contract workers, clearing the way for a general strike beginning Wednesday.

The court put one limitation on the strike, allowing a shut down of Ben-Gurion Airport to take place only between the hours of 6 a.m. and 12 p.m.
