Six hundred and thirty civilian employees of Israel Police were striking for the first time, protesting the delay in signing a collective employment agreement, Israel Radio reported on Wednesday.

Among the services to be affected were servicing of vehicles, reception at police stations, and the typing of indictments.

The civilian employees have been demanding support from the Histadrut for three years in their fight for employment standing comparable to sworn police officers.

The Finance Ministry responded that the state was ready to offer better employment conditions but that demands made in negotiations for higher pay could not be met, according to the report.
