The Histadrut labor federation and Finance Ministry now have until 11 a.m. Sunday to update the National Labor Court on the progress of negotiations over the employment status of contract workers, after the court approved an application from the parties on Thursday.

The labor court ordered the two sides to return to negotiations on Monday after allowing the Histadrut to hold a four-hour general strike that morning in protest over the issue of contract workers. Both sides were originally ordered to submit written reports on the negotiations to the court by Thursday 12 p.m.

The Histadrut wrote in its submission to the court on Thursday that it was locked in “intensive talks on the issues under dispute” with the Finance Ministry, Federation of Israeli Economic Organizations and the Union of Local Authorities.
