Education Minister Yuli Tamir said Sunday that if an agreement with striking teachers is not reached this week, she will appeal to the National Labor Court to issue an injunction halting the strike.
Tamir spoke at the cabinet meeting Sunday, saying the ministry had thus far refrained from seeking an injunction in order to try and reach a settlement with the Secondary School Teachers Organization.
"We will make another effort to reach an agreement this week. If we do not succeed, we will issue the injunction," Tamir said, adding that she did not believe the teachers' threat that such a move would lead to mass resignations.
