Employees of the nuclear reactor in Dimona have decided to enact work sanctions after ongoing negotiations have failed to bring an end to a dispute over their work conditions, Channel 10 reported on Thursday.

Beginning Sunday, external workers will not be allowed to work in the facility, and the union may shut down the core completely in the coming weeks if their demands are not met.

The Atomic Energy Commission stated that operation of the reactor and its safety will not be hurt by the sanctions. The employees will be working on a Shabbat schedule, but the reactor will continue to operate normally.

The dispute is between the Treasury and the reactor's managers, who are demanding conditions comparable to those of nuclear researchers.
