Israel Discount Bank’s 5,000 employees will be on strike Wednesday,
closing all of the the bank’s branches. They are to attend a conference
in Tel Aviv with Histadrut Labor Federation chairman Ofer Eini.
The labor dispute, which has been ongoing for several weeks, is over
the rights of temporary workers, who have been employed by the bank for
five to seven years. They have not been given the status of permanent
workers, which means they have no job security and could be fired at
Israel Discount Bank said direct
banking channels including telephone, Internet and other automatic
banking services would operate as usual on Wednesday.
