Download PDF for this date

Electronic journalists, demanding the same wage settlements just reached with newspaper reporters, blacked out radio and television Tuesday. Army Radio and Educational Television are not affected.

The strike, which began as a one-day work stoppage to pressure the Israel Broadcast Authority, was extended for a second day and may continue until Thursday if a second day and may continue until Thursday if no agreement is reached.

Several newspapers were struck last Friday for higher wages. New contracts were signed over the weekend by all but the independent daily Haaretz. The latter signed an agreement Tuesday after four days off the stands and will resume publication Wednesday.
