Teachers to strike Wednesday as labor talks with Finance Ministry deteriorate
The Israel Teachers Union announces that instructors will not be showing up to school at all tomorrow, as labor negotiations with the Finance Ministry take a turn for the worse.
Teachers have already been carrying out a partial strike for several days over wage disputes, starting classes several hours late.
The latest decision by union head Yaffa Ben David will apply to daycares and elementary schools, while special education facilities will continue to operate as normal. High schools concluded classes for the summer yesterday.
“We have been negotiating with Finance Ministry officials for six months, but we have yet to receive even one concrete proposal,” Ben David claims in a statement announcing the move.
