Government ministers could find themselves without their bodyguards if a worker's dispute between the guards and their employer remains unresolved, a Histadrut spokesman told the Jerusalem Post on Sunday. Eyal Malma, a Histadrut spokesman, said the quarrel began seven months ago when the Mikud security company, which won a government tender to employ the guards, reneged on an agreement on working conditions. Mikud denied the Histadrut's account of the dispute, insisting that it employed the bodyguards in accordance to labor laws and the terms set by its tender.
