Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu agreed to enter negotiations with the Histadrut labor federation in a meeting Wednesday night with Histadrut chairman Ofer Eini.

The Histadrut hopes to convert significant numbers of independent contractors, who are unable to maintain seniority and are denied  many employment benefits, into full-time government employees.

Eini threatened to call a general strike over the issue in early October.
