Class at kindergartens, elementary schools and junior highs will end on Monday at 1 P.M, followed by Israel's teachers' union protest later in the evening over the stalemate in negotiations with the Finance Ministry over a new wage agreement for teachers.

The Teachers Association said that the short school day was aimed at permitting the teachers to attend a 6 P.M. protest on Monday in front of the Tel Aviv Museum of Art.

The Finance Ministry is seeking to have the new salary pact narrow wage disparities between long-time teachers and newly employed ones. The teachers’ union opposes such a policy and is seeking an agreement that would provide for uniform salary increases for all teachers.

While the prior wage agreement expired in 2019, negotiations on a new one only began in January.
