The Histadrut labor federation submitted another request for a general strike to the National Labor Court Tuesday, after talks with the Finance Ministry over the employment status of contract workers broke down again.

Histadrut Chairman Ofer Eini, Finance Ministry budgets director Gal Hershkovitz, Federation of Israeli Economic Organizations Chairman Shraga Brosh and other representatives of the various sides met Monday night in an effort to break the standoff. According to the Histadrut, the meeting ended over the refusal of Treasury officials to move contract workers into direct employment. The Treasury declined to comment on the meeting.
