Exhaust-in Pays off

Download PDF for this date

Israel’s most unconventional strike, the “exhaust-in” paid off for workers at the Eilat electric power station who, instead of walking off the job, stayed on day and night until exhaustion prevented them from working. The electric company agreed to their demands to add extra workers to the three shifts yesterday and the workers agreed to resume normal hours. The exhaust-in was devised as a means of striking without violating the Labor Ministry’s back-to-work order.
