Opposition leader Yair Lapid meets this evening with Histadrut union chief Arnon Bar-David to discuss the potential of a wide labor strike in protest of the current government, reports Channel 13 news.

According to the TV report, Lapid is hoping to garner Bar-David’s support to launch a wide labor strike in protest of the government’s plans to massively overhaul the judiciary system.

But Channel 13 reports that Bar-David is unlikely to get on board with such a measure, and is even expected to push back against a narrower labor dispute by prosecutors as well.
