Histadrut Labor Federation chairman Ofer Eini on Sunday expressed satisfaction with the deal signed with the Finance Ministry to end the general strike over the status of contract workers, saying, "We got what we wanted from the start."

In an Army Radio interview, Eini rejected claims that he had failed to solve the problem of contract workers, because not all the workers in question would be transferred to direct employment as part of the deal.

"This is not the end of the process," Eini said of the agreement, "we have put our foot in the door."

The Histadrut chairman claimed that expecting all contract workers to be transferred to direct employment as part of the deal was unrealistic. "To take in all the contract workers in one day would cost 50 billion shekels."
