After a night of extending deadlines and intensive negotiations, the Histadrut Labor Federation and Treasury on Thursday were on the verge of signing an agreement to end a general strike in its second day, Israel Radio reported.

According to preliminary reports, the Histadrut's agreement includes two parts: a deal reached with private employers Tuesday and a deal with the government.

The Finance Ministry reportedly agreed to absorb a small number of contract workers as full time employees and increase salaries and benefits for cleaning workers and social workers.

The agreement with private employers, settled with the Federation of Israeli Economic Organizations, includes a partial transfer of cleaning workers to direct employment, transfer of contract workers whose jobs mirror directly employed workers into direct employment and giving full worker's rights to those who remain as contract workers.
