Social Workers Strike
By Micah Halpern
Israel's Union of Social Workers announced that, because the Finance Ministry has not kept its commitment to devote NIS 200 million to reforming social workers' salaries, they will hold demonstrations throughout the country. If their demands are still not met, the demonstrations will be followed by a general strike.
The Chairman of the Union of Social Workers, Attorney Inbal Harmoni, said in a statement: "The Finance Ministry and the entire government of Israel [negated] the salary increase that was signed and agreed upon with us.
"In the coming days, we will disrupt all social services throughout the country until a complete shutdown [is achieved] and [stage] demonstrations throughout the country."
Social workers are an integral part of Israeli society. When they strike, countless Israelis suffer.
