Dozens of bus drivers from the "Tour Bus" company which operates internal shuttles at Ben Gurion Airport announced that they would strike on the eve of Passover.

The shuttle bus drivers notified the Ministry of Economy that they intended to start a strike in two weeks for an indefinite amount of time. The strike was called due to large wage gaps between drivers from the "Tour Bus" company and drivers from other bus companies.

The Histadrut national workers union revealed that although the management of the bus company received raises for each hour of driving, the drivers themselves did not receive any raises.
