The Histadrut Labor Federation assails politicians after the reasonableness law passes, saying “all attempts to mediate failed due to political whims on both sides.”

It says it will announce a labor dispute in the coming days.

“From this moment on any unilateral advancement of the reform will have grave consequences,” says Histadrut head Arnon Bar-David, “up to and including a full strike” of workers’ unions throughout the country.
