General strike continues after overnight talks fail

Litter continued to pile up Sunday morning as the general strike continued into its fifth day, after Histadrut and Treasury representatives failed to reach an agreement overnight regarding the employment of contract workers.
Parties are expected to update Judge Nili Arad, National Labor Court president at 10 a.m. with detailed written arguments on the progress of the talks between them. The court will then decide whether to issue a fresh injunction to terminate the strike
Representatives for the Histadrut and the Finance Ministry met in Jerusalem at 9 p.m. Saturday in an effort to reach an agreement and talked through the night, but produced no results.
