National Labor Court President Nili Arad will hold a closed-door meeting Thursday on the Histadrut labor federation’s request to renew a general strike over the employment status of contract workers.

Arad ordered the Histadrut, Treasury, Union of Local Authorities and employers to continue negotiations until Thursday. Her decision to hold the meeting came in response to a submission from the Histadrut on Sunday.

The labor federation told the court that more than one month of negotiations had failed to produce results. It said Monday that wide gaps still existed between it and Treasury, but added that agreement had been reached on enforcement of labor laws, and that they had an understanding on the need to increase the quantity of inspectors.
