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.
