The National Labor Court was set to commence hearings for striking train workers at 4:00 p.m. after rail employees failed to appear before the court until presiding judge Efrat Lekser threatened to order police to bring them in.

Train service had not yet resumed Tuesday afternoon, despite orders from the court that striking railway workers return to work at 9:00 a.m. Representatives of the striking train employees were scheduled to appear at the court in Jerusalem at 11:00 a.m. following an injunction against their strike. Still, they did not appear for the discussions until after 1:00 p.m., when the court threatened to take police action in order to force them to participate in court hearings.

Following their appearance, hearings were rescheduled for 4:00 p.m. in order to end the strike that was the result of a labor dispute within Israel Railways.
