Social workers employed in the public sector were scheduled to strike on Monday in protest against their lack of protection against violence they face in the course of fulfilling their duties.

The decision to strike came after a social worker was physically attacked in Dimona last week.

The social workers are requesting that the state provide better security at welfare offices throughout the country.
