Israel Airports Authority union declares strike
Israel Airports Authority employees union declared a strike from the morning of 09-Sep-2010, over the establishment of a fund to safeguard workers' pensions (Haaretz, 07-Sep-2010). Employees operated under emergency procedures with a reduced number of staff. The action was threatened two weeks ago. Airport employees say the workers' committee and the Histadrut labour federation have approached the IAA on the issue several times over the past two years, with no progress made. The union's board will convene on the evening of 11-Sep-2010 to determine its next move.
