The Histadrut has been the play maker in Israel for far too long. I realize it will suck to deal with the strike, but the govt should not give in at all. Let the strike go on. Have the workers sit and not make a shekel until they come to their senses. Then they will turn on the fascist leaders of the union and break them. Or outlaw the Histadrut. I've lived here 6 years and it's the same crap every year with these idiots. Bust 'em up!
