Haifa Technion Student Strike Ends; Agreement on Dispute Reached

A dispute at the Israel Institute of Technology which lod to a strike by all of the Technion students was settled last night and the students promptly halted their strike.

The agreement ending the dispute provides that the Technion administration will invite all instructors who taught in the architecture faculty this year to continue to give the same number of hours of instruction next year. The Technion also agreed to assure representation of the faculty when matters concerning that faculty are discussed by any Technion body. Faculty members had complained they were not represented at discussions of vital importance to the faculty.

The dispute, which has been in existence several years, reached a head four months ago when the Technion Senate decided to split the architecture faculty and replace its dean. The settlement provides that a unified study program for the faculty has been worked out. The students began their strike yesterday morning.
