The Histadrut Labor Federation on Wednesday announced that it is planning a general strike next week.

The announcement comes on the heels of negotiations with the Finance Ministry, a meeting that ended without any progress.

Among the demands being made by the Histadrut is that the state reduce its employment of cleaning workers through contractors instead of directly employing them.
