Eini to meet Bar-On in effort to prevent strike

Histadrut Chairman Ofer Eini is set to meet with new Finance Minister Ronnie Bar-On on Tuesday in an attempt to prevent another general public sector strike, Army Radio reported. Workers unions have threatened to strike if their salaries are not raised by 10 percent; however, the Finance Ministry has refused, claiming that such a raise would cost the state billions of shekels.
