The Histadrut labor federation announced Sunday its intention to submit a request to the National Labor Court to renew the general strike on behalf of contract workers.
The move follows month-long negotiations with the Finance Ministry, business leaders and the union of local authorities, which the Histadrut claims did not produce results.
The Histadrut said it would report that there has been no meaningful progression in talks. It will also request to hold a deliberation at the National Labor Court that will allow it to renew the strike by Wednesday.
“We said already at the start of the struggle that we want to change the world view in which there are two types of workers," said Histadrut Chairman Ofer Eini.
