Short-lived wildcat strike shuts Ben-Gurion airport

Hundreds of Israel Airports Authority employees protested yesterday afternoon opposite the organization’s headquarters after declaring a general strike at Ben-Gurion International Airport.

The strike quickly ended as the Histadrut labor federation intervened and called to renew negotiations between workers and management officials.

Histadrut chief Ofer Eini broke into in the ongoing dispute, after management threatened to call for a decree forcing the employees back to work. This is the second time in a week workers called a strike, with both sides still blaming each other for their failure to reach an agreement. A week ago, airport employees returned to their regular work through the intervention of the Tel Aviv Labor Court, after delays in service caused disruptions in air traffic.
