The fuel refineries in Haifa and Ashdod have declared a strike effective Monday morning. The strike resulted from deadlocked negotiations with the government over workers' rights during the company's privatization. The workers had already threatened to strike 10 days ago, but eventually rescinded the strike before it began, Israel Radio reported.
