Israel's Embassy in Berlin, Germany

Local employees at Israeli missions, consulates and embassies around the world plan to strike on Friday morning, it was announced Thursday.

The job action comes in response to an extended delay in wage enhancements following a dispute that dates back to January 2018 and months prior. Locally-employed workers comprise about 60 percent of the staff at Israeli embassies and consulates around the world.

The workers’ committee announced in its statement there will be no public reception hours at Israeli embassies and consulates worldwide on Friday, and other services will be curtailed as well.

In addition, Israeli representatives will not attend special committee meetings at the United Nations and European Union this weekend, and possibly beyond.
