The Finance Ministry and leaders of Israel’s main labor union, the Histadrut, reached a deal that ended a five-day nationwide strike that crippled Israel’s finance, transportation, health care, and municipal sectors.
The Histadrut was protesting the conditions of contract workers in the public and private sectors, and, under the agreement ending the walkout Sunday, contract workers will now receive pay raises and improved benefits.
