Channel 10 lay off 150 employees, future unclear

Channel 10’s board of directors decided Tuesday afternoon to lay off 150 workers, after the previous night’s meeting over its debt repayments to the state ended without resolution.
Last week, management agreed to Histadrut Chairman Ofer Eini’s request to delay the layoffs in order to allow more time for the matter to be discussed.
A group representing Channel 10 employees immediately rejected the latest decision, instructing members not to accept their dismissal notices and not to attend any hearings to which they are summoned. The group said only two options existed: either no employees would be laid off, or there would be “collective layoffs and a network blackout.”
