The National Labor Court on Tuesday ruled not to allow the Histadrut Labor Federation to hold a general strike over the employment status of contract workers.
The court, however, did not rule out the possibility that a strike on the issue could be allowed in the future. The court ordered the Histadrut to return to negotiations with the Treasury and employers for a period of three weeks until January 31.
The Histadrut will be allowed to make an additional request to strike if the conflict has not been resolved at the end of the negotiating period.
