Teachers and principals take part in a protest in Habima Square in central Tel Aviv amid an ongoing wage dispute between the state and the Israeli Teachers’ Union.

Last week, the union filed a work dispute, threatening to go on strike and not show up on the first day of classes in September if it is unable to reach a new salary agreement with the state.

Teachers claim that the Finance Ministry’s current offer to raise teachers’ salaries is not nearly enough.
