Israel Minister Warns Government Employees to End ‘go Slow’ Strike

Download PDF for this date

Finance Minister Pinhas Sapir warned postal and tax administration workers today to call off their three-week long “go slow” action but the workers gave no indication they would heed the warning.

The slowdown has crippled mail service throughout Israel and cut deeply into Israel’s tax collections. The Finance Minister said that if the slowdown actions were not stopped within two weeks, the workers would be considered “full-fledged” strikers “with all the consequences involved.”
