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.
