Israeli Foreign Ministry strike ends

(JNS.org) The Israeli Foreign Ministry strike, which shut down Israeli embassies and consulates around the world for almost two weeks, ended Wednesday, April 2, after the two sides came to an agreement on a pay increase for workers. According to the new agreement reached between the Israeli Finance Ministry and the Histradrut Labor Federation, the foreign ministry will have greater control over sending emissaries abroad; pension plans will be strengthened, especially for families of diplomats; and more financial assistance will be provided for diplomats going abroad.
