The Association of High School teachers in Israel declared a labor dispute with regards to vocational - technological schools under the authority of the Economy Ministry on Sunday.

According to the association, the dispute was declared against the economy and education ministries as well as the organizations operating the high schools.  The teachers cited "non-compliance with the agreements towards the vocational-technological schools” and the fact that they are subject to "inferior conditions" compared to their counterparts employed in schools under the supervision of the education ministry as reasons for the dispute.

The Association called on all vocational-technological schools to be transferred to the authority of the education ministry.
