General Strike in Israel – Almost March 21, 2007Posted by franklittle in Israel, Trade Unions.
Israel has shut down as 400,000 public sector and transport workers go on strike over non-payment of wages to local authority workers. (I know, you thought for a second it was over the Apartheid Wall.)
The bit that amuses me however, is that airport workers have been given permission by the unions to break the strike for the flight into Israel of the English soccer team to play Israel in the Euro 2008 qualifiers. They will, however, still refuse to service planeloads of English soccer fans.
