Histadrut Labor Federation Chairman Ofer Eini said Wednesday that the general strike could end with the intervention of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu.

Given Finance Minister Yuval Steinitz's determined opposition to adding his name to a Histadrut agreement with Federation of Israeli Economic Organizations chairman Shraga Brosh, Eini said, Netanyahu should give an "in principal"  endorsement to the agreement .

"If the PM agrees, the strike will end," Eini said.

The Brosh agreement includes a partial transfer of cleaning workers to direct employment, transfer of contract workers whose jobs mirror directly employed workers into direct employment and giving full worker's rights to those who remain as contract workers.
