Civil Service Workers Threaten to Go on Strike

Download PDF for this date

Israel’s 150,000 civil. service workers decided last night to declare a labor dispute and to start a strike on August 15 unless their wages are increased eight percent. The workers in government and public institutions want their wages raised on par with the eight percent hike given to engineers by the government. Wages of civil service employes and engineers are normally kept on par.
