Seaport employees are threatening to go on strike next week in dispute of the management of their pension funds, Israel Radio reported on Thursday.

The Histadrut Labor Federation is demanding that pension money be moved to a central pension fund.

Finance Ministry representatives were scheduled to meet with port employee representatives on Thursday to discuss the issue.
