The management of Israel Railways on Thursday requested that the National Labor Court issue an injunction against train employees whose work sanctions caused multiple transportation delays throughout Thursday.

Army Radio reported that the court may hold a discussion on the issue late Thursday night.

Train crews were threatened, travelers walked on train tracks and in one instance a woman was injured when a worker pulled the emergency brake as part of the sanctions.

Israel Railways management called on the worker's union to return to the negotiating table in order to prevent further inconveniencing the public.

Train employees object to plans by management to transfer maintenance of the cars from Israel Railways employees to the company that manufactures the cars.
