At noon on Sunday, National Labor Court President Judge Nili Arad ordered representatives from the Histadrut, the state, the Manufacturers Assocation and the Haifa Port Company to attend a hearing in her chambers at the National Labor Court  at 6 p.m. Sunday in order to discuss the matter of the port strike.

The order came after the Manufacturers Association of Israel and the Haifa Port Company filed an urgent request to the court on Sunday morning for injunctions to halt the port strikes in Haifa, Ashdod and Eilat.

Arad also ordered the Histadrut and the state to file written responses to the court by 4 p.m. Sunday regarding the Manufacturers Association's request for injunctions.

The Manufacturers Assocation and the Haifa Port Company told the court that the call to strike was illegal and asked it to order workers to return to their duties immediately. The two organizations also requested that the court order the state to commence "intensive and urgent negotiations to find a solution to the crisis" and asked the court to organize mediation between the parties after it issues injunctions.
