The Committee of University Presidents (CUP) announced late Sunday night that they would pursue all avenues to end the university strike including appealing to the National Labor Court for legal intervention. After an emergency session, the CUP also said that the first semester of the school year would be cancelled on January 13 if the strike did not end by then. That date marks the absolute last point at which the academic year can be completed by extending the year into the summer, the CUP said in a statement. CUP head Prof. Moshe Kaveh invited Senior Lecturers Union (SLU) head Prof. Zvi Hacohen and the other representatives of the professors to an urgent meeting Monday night to try once again to end the strike, which has stretched to over 50 days long.
