Finance Minister Yuval Steinitz said on Thursday that the government will agree to talks regarding the housing crisis, Army Radio reported.

"To this day, the dialogue with Eini has helped Israel, the workers, and the economy," said Steinitz. He continued, "If he (Histadrut Chairman Ofer Eini) wants to talk, let's talk," according to the report.

This was in response to Eini's statement on Wednesday threatening to put the full weight of the Histadrut behind the housing protesters if Prime Minister Netanyahu does not manage to solve the crisis by the end of the week.

"Find a solution by Saturday evening or the Histadrut will enter protests at all levels," Eini told Netanyahu in a press conference Wednesday.
