The Histadrut labor federation announced Thursday that Israel Railway workers will stage strikes throughout the coming week. According to the Histadrut, trains will stop running throughout the country on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

The one-day-on one-day-off strike will continue until further notice, the Histadrut said.

The decision to stop rail traffic was taken after negotiations between Histadrut Chairman Ofer Eini and Israel Railways Director-General Uri Yogev made no progress on the issue of privatizing maintenance work on new rail cars.
