The city of Jerusalem goes on strike Monday over the refusal of the Finance Ministry to transfer funds to the municipality.

The strike, which began Sunday, is a protest over the capital budget which the city government says the ministry owes the municipality.


The school day will begin at 10 am Monday, and all after-school programs in the capital are cancelled, at least as of Sunday evening. However, special education programs will function as usual, according to the municipality.

The campaign is being carried out by the Jerusalem municipality in cooperation with the Histadrut Labor Union, together with community leaders and parent organizations.

Demonstrations are likely to be held by the above groups during the day on Monday throughout Jerusalem.
