The Histadrut labor federation on Wednesday suspended Gila Edri, head of the train workers board, and four other members of the board from their leadership roles.

Histadrut officials said that they suspended Edri and the other board members primarily on two grounds.

First, they had boycotted all Histadrut-endorsed meetings with train management in order to resolve the labor issues in dispute. Second, they had acted inappropriately and sometimes boycotted hearings before the labor court where they were required to attend.

Minister of Transportation Yisrael Katz publicly endorsed the Histadtur's decision to suspend Edri and the others. He also expressed hope that with that issue behind them, the Histadrut and management would finally be able to arrive at a package of reforms that would be acceptable to all parties.
