Eini: Only a Labor Court injunction can prevent strike

November 6, 2011 16:05

Histadrut labor federation chairman Ofer Eini said Sunday that the general strike scheduled for Monday over the employment status of contract workers will not be limited to a pre-ordained period of time and can only be prevented by an injunction from the National Labor Court.

Eini made the comments in an interview with Army Radio after having concluded a meeting with Finance Ministry budget director Gal Hershkovitz without making any progress to avert the strike late on Saturday night.

"We will respect all Labor Court decisions, we are not outlaws, but we have here a real problem that I believe needs to be handled seriously," Eini stated.
