Finance Minister Yuval Steinitz and Histadrut Chairman Ofer Eini met Tuesday in the wake of the previous day's brief general strike, but failed to resolve their differences over the employment status of contract workers.

In a joint statement, the two said the meeting was conducted in good spirit. Steinitz told the labor federation chairman of his decision to absorb Holocaust survivor care workers into the civil service. The two also agreed on the need for stronger enforcement of workers’ rights.

The two emphasized in their joint statement that they remained in disagreement regarding Eini’s demand that contract workers be transferred to direct employment. Representatives of the Federation of Israeli Economic Organization and the Union of Local Authorities will be invited to join the meetings.
