Histadrut Labor Federation head Ofer Eini has arrived at an agreement with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's representatives over an economic "package deal" that will allow the government to bring the new biannual budget proposal to the cabinet for a vote on Tuesday, Army Radio reported Monday. According to the report, the Treasury was not a side to the agreement and Finance Ministry officials stormed out of the room where the marathon talks were being held, saying that the agreement, under which the budgetary framework would be increased, was irresponsible and could cause Israel to fall deep into debt.
