The junior staff at Ben-Gurion University will stage a one-day strike on Thursday to protest the administration's plan to change their employment conditions.

Some 2,200 junior staff members in both the Beersheba campus and the Eilat campus of the university will go on strike.

According to the junior staff, the plan will hurt their pay in up to 40%.

The university said in response that the junior staff is acting impractically and is harming the students.
