For the third time Wednesday night, the Treasury and the Histadrut Labor Federation extended a deadline for the conclusion of negotiations. The sides are now scheduled to announce an update on the talks within the coming hours.

Judge Nili Arad, president of the National Labor Court, ordered Finance Minister Yuval Steinitz and Histadrut Chairman Ofer Eini to continue their talks. They had originally been asked to notify her on the outcome of negotiations by 1 a.m, but extended that deadline multiple times.

Following the notification, the National Labor Court is expected to make a ruling regarding whether the general strike can continue and if so, in what format.
