Histadrut Chairman Ofer Eini and Finance Ministry wage director Ozer Berkovitch agreed to a 2.1 percent wage rise for all public sector workers, effective June 1, the labor union and ministry said Tuesday. The original agreement signed in 2002 provided a similar rise that year, and required a second rise to take place in January 2004. As part of former Finance Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's "growth encouragement" policy, however, implementation of the second part of the agreement was postponed to help cut public spending.
