The meeting between Finance Minister Yuval Steinitz and Histadrut chairman Ofer Eini over an increase in public sector wages ended with no results on Friday morning.

Discussions will continue between the two parties in an attempt to close the gap between the 10.5 percent cumulative wage hike demanded by the Histadrut and the cumulative 1.5% offered by the Finance Ministry. The Histadrut has been threatening to strike beginning Tuesday of next week.
