Chairman of the Histadrut labor union federation MK Amir Peretz threatened on Thursday that he would initiate a massive labor strike if the salaries of 3,000 Israel Military Industries employees were not paid by the end of the day. Peretz said that Acting Finance Minister Ehud Olmert was continuing along the path of his precursor, MK Binyamin Netanyahu, in the policy of failing to pay salaries, Israel Radio reported. The Finance Ministry responded that the management of IMI was responsible for paying the salaries of its workers and pensioners, but that the management was not willing to enter into discussions with the ministry to solve the crisis.
