PM’s office: Lapid, Liberman discussed finding ‘solutions’ for start of school year

Prime Minister Yair Lapid has held talks today with numerous officials, his office says, amid efforts to avoid a teachers’ strike at the start of the school year.

Lapid met with Finance Minister Avigdor Liberman, whose ministry is holding salary talks with the Israel Teachers Union. The two discussed how to find “solutions for the start of the coming school year, properly and on time,” according to a statement from the Prime Minister’s Office.

The premier also spoke with the union’s leader, Yaffa Ben David, and Education Minister Yifat Shasha-Biton. He is due to talk later with Merom Schiff, head of the National Parents’ Council.
