The Secondary School Teachers Organization and the government were ordered to present a list of draft documents to the National Labor Court by noon on Wednesdayto decide how to continue the negotiations. The Court will discuss the state's request to issue warrants forcing teachers back to work. On Tuesday, Teachers Union head Yossi Wasserman offered to mediate between the two sides. "I think it's time to end the strike. I'm willing to be a loyal partner in order to bridge between the two sides and end the strike," he said. The professors also met with the Treasury at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem to discuss their ongoing strike and salary demands - but the talks broke down after the Treasury reverted to offering terms from several years ago that the Shochat Committee had already rejected, the senior lecturers' union said. Ehud Zion Waldoks contributed to this report.
