The workers' union of the Foreign Ministry decided on Wednesday to end their
sanctions that have caused problems for Israel internationally following a
meeting that took place between Foreign Ministry, Treasury, and Histadrut
The union said in a statement on Wednesday that the Finance
Ministry had presented a framework for upgrading Foreign Ministry workers' wages
and a timetable for reaching an agreement.
Ministry workers have refused
to facilitate Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's visits to the United States
and Greece and have caused embarrassment by leaving visiting foreign dignitaries
at Ben-Gurion airport and at a restaurant in Abu Ghosh.
