State to compensate teachers with NIS 150 million

August 25, 2010 14:12

The state will spend NIS 150 million to compensate 20,000 teachers after a ruling by the National Labor Court, Israel Radio reported on Wednesday. High school teachers' contracts were broken across the board, the court said.

The Education Ministry unilaterally canceled the collective pay settlement in 2003, claiming that its pension arrangements were not legal. The courts had previously ruled that the teachers were owed compensation, but the state has until now refused to pay.
