Histadrut Labor Federation Chairman Ofer Eini on Tuesday attacked the Finance Ministry for "going into a bunker"in negotiations over the status of contract workers.

Eini was scheduled to meet with Finance Minister Yuval Steinitz on Tuesday night in efforts to avoid a general strike over the issue scheduled to begin on Wednesday.

Speaking to Channel 2, Eini sais that while no progress had been reached in talks with the Finance Ministry, some advancement had been noted in negotiations with employers from the private sector.

The Histadrut says it wants to put an end to the practice of employing cleaners and maintenance personnel on a contractual basis, by transferring them into direct employment. The Treasury says it supports improving the labor conditions of contract workers, but rejects discontinuing the practice altogether.
