Central bank staff may okay job action in Israel

The Bank of Israel labor union will meet next week to officially approve "lengthy strikes," Haaretz reported Friday 16 July. Central bank employees struck for one day last May.

Union chief Rafi Lankry was quoted by Haaretz as saying the planned strike is based on two issues: the bank's employment of outside consultants, some of whom have replaced regular bank employees, and the lack of an agreement regarding the promotion of some workers.

The central bank's management rejected the union's claim
