Ma’ariv workers decided on Tuesday night to strike, refusing to print the Wednesday morning edition of Israel’s second-biggest-selling newspaper or update its website.

The workers are protesting expected layoffs and salary cuts from new owner Shlomo Ben Zvi, who already owns the smaller Makor Rishon newspaper. Ben Zvi, who purchased the troubled, more than 60-year-old Ma’ariv last month, has said workers earning more than 22,000 shekels per month would have to take pay cuts.

In addition to protesting the expected layoffs and pay cuts — which would violate the workers’ collective bargaining agreement with the newspaper — the workers are also demanding clarifications on Ben Zvi’s plans for the many magazines, sections and secondary publications in the Ma’ariv chain.
