Israel’s Secondary School Teachers’ Association, which represents high school staff, threatens a job action over what it says is a “standstill” in talks with the Treasury over employment conditions of high school teachers.

In a letter addressed to Education Minister Yifat Shasha-Biton, association head Ran Erez says the measures are meant as a “warning” at this point and will not fully disrupt the school year.

As part of the association’s planned measures, high school teachers (grades 10-12) will not participate in any activity after school hours. This includes professional conferences, seminars, organized trips, and any form of extra-curricular activity.

A special committee will be established to examine exceptions case-by-case, the association says. The measures are set to come into effect on Tuesday, October 25.
