Histadrut to ask court to okay strike over contract workers

The Histadrut Labor Federation on Tuesday will again request that the National Labor Court allow a general strike over the status of contract workers, Israel Radio reported on Monday.
The National Labor Court previously refused such a request, ordering the Histadrut to negotiate a solution to the issue with the Finance Ministry. The Histadrut on Monday said that those negotiations have arrived at an impasse.
The Histadrut is requesting that contract workers be absorbed as regular employees. The Finance Ministry says it is prepared to improve the contract workers' conditions, but refuses to absorb them as regular salaried employees.
