One-hour Work Stoppage

Download PDF for this date

Workers in hundreds of factories staged a one-hour work stoppage today to attend protest meetings against the new economic policy adopted this week by the government which entails a 25 percent hike on essential commodities. Histadrut, which called the work stop-page, is demanding an immediate increase in the cost of living index.
