Histadrut to postpone report to court on contract workers

The Histadrut labor federation was set to announce Sunday to the National Labor Court, that it was postponing its report until Thursday, regarding negotiations over the employment status of contract workers, Israel Radio reported.
The court had given the Histadrut labor federation and Finance Ministry until Sunday at 11 a.m. to update it on the progress of negotiations, after the court approved an application from the parties on Thursday.
The court ordered the two sides to return to negotiations last Monday after allowing the Histadrut to hold a four-hour general strike that morning in protest over the issue of contract workers. Both sides were originally ordered to submit written reports on the negotiations to the court by Thursday at noon.
