The leadership of the General Federation of trade unions («Histadrut») reported that in negotiations between a Committee of municipal employees and the local government center is not planned no progress.
In this regard, in the night of Wednesday, February 10, will strike the municipalities, which will be about 100 thousand people.
The reason is the refusal of local authorities to implement the arrangement on payment of 100 thousands of municipal workers bonus in the amount of 1,000 shekels.
The center of local government, in turn, requires that the state compensated 100 million shekels, which the municipalities have to spend on bonus payments.
Israeli media on 1 February reported that the strike will affect the whole system of education. In the «Histadrut», commenting on the publications, stated that it will apply only to kindergartens, but will not affect the timetable of schools. However, new publishing media, in particular on the portal ynet, continue to insist that the strike will affect the system of education, except schools for children with special needs.
