Local Authorities set to join social workers' strike

The Union of Local Authorities said that if there is no resolution to the social workers labor dispute by Monday, that it will launch a full strike (not including educational institutions) on Tuesday.
Union of Local Authorities chairman Shlomo Buhbut said, "The local authorities were forced to strike because social work is at the heart of the service we provide to our residents." He added that the union demands full compensation for any wage increase included in an agreement.
