Histadrut, Treasury to meet again to avert strike

On Monday afternoon Histadrut labor chairman Ofer Eini will meet with Finance Minister Yuval Steinitz in Jerusalem in a last-ditch effort to avert a general strike in the public sector over a wage dispute planned for Tuesday.
Earlier on Sunday, the Histadrut said that it was still preparing for a general strike if negotiations with the Finance Ministry over the wage hike demand fail to lead to a new collective agreement by late Monday night.
