The Histadrut labor federation launched a fresh bid Sunday evening to hold a general strike over the employment status of contract workers, telling the National Labor Court that negotiations between it and the Treasury have reached a dead end.

The National Labor Court first ordered the sides to conduct negotiations over the status of contract workers after allowing the Histadrut to hold a four-hour strike on November 7. The Histadrut decided to strike after the October release of the government's and neo-liberal Trajtenberg Report "on socioeconomic change" – which legitimized continued public sector contracting and outsourcing.
