Some Clal Insurance Staff to Strike Sunday

Workers lament a lack of progress in talks with management on an initial collective employment agreement.

Some employees at Clal Insurance, which unionized through the Histadrut labor federation at the beginning of the year, are expected to go on strike on Sunday.

The move comes as workers complain of a lack of progress with management on an initial collective employment agreement. The management says such a strike would violate a commitment by the workers not to impose labor sanctions at least before October 20, but an employee who spoke to TheMarker said that was premised on the assumption that there would be progress in the talks.

The Histadrut declared a labor dispute before the Jewish holidays, and claims that it is only bound by a 14-day cooling-off period, which has expired.
