The Histadrut, rail workers, Israel Railways and the Transportation Ministry reached an agreement at the Tel Aviv Labor Court to put off a rail strike by two weeks in order to allow for more negotiations between the sides.

Rail workers had sought permission from the court Sunday night to strike against an agreement signed by Israel Railways to outsource maintenance of train cars.

If the sides fail to reach an agreement in the coming two weeks, the Labor Court will permit rail workers to stage a limited strike and Israel Railways will be allowed to implement its disputed outsourcing agreement.
