Chamber of the Supreme court of justice composed of three judges, headed by the Deputy Chairman of the high court, Esther Hayut sided with the state in a lawsuit against the working Committee of the Israel electric company («Hevrat Hashmal») and the Israeli national labour court.
The judge acknowledged that the state has reason to believe a strike in «Hevrat Hashmal» illegal and announced its intention to issue a decree abolishing the court decision on labor disputes.
To avoid this decree, the working Committee «Hevrat Hashmal» unilaterally announced the termination of the strike.
The court also approved a new version of the compromise solution which satisfied almost all the requirements of the state.
In particular, according to the decree, August 29 the government will refrain from structural changes in «Hevrat Hashmal» and on the electricity market.
During this period, the state will hold a series of consultations with the working Committee of the company, and upon its completion will have the full right to reform. After 29 August, the talks with the working Committee will only be conducted on the impact of the reform, not its content.
The final decision on the claim States the judge will make September 29 the results of the negotiations between the parties.
