Representatives of the Union of Local Authorities met with Interior Minister Eli Yishai Tuesday in order to outline their demands to reach a deal for ending the strike the union began Monday, Army Radio reported.

Despite Yishai's declaration Tuesday morning that the strike would end the same day, employees continued to stay off the job after Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu rejected demands drafted following a meeting with the interior minister Monday.

Ending the strike will allow discussions with the Prime Minister's Office director-general with the aim of presenting recommendations to Netanyahu on solving the Local Authorities' problems within a month, Yishai told Israel Radio Tuesday.
