Foreign ministry workers halt service of ministers' trips abroad
The Foreign Ministry's Workers Union ordered all employees to immediately stop servicing the trips abroad of ministers and their deputies as part of the labor dispute at the ministry. A written notice cited the foreign minister and his deputy as the exceptions to the measure.


Finance Minister Yair Lapid and Agriculture Minister Yair Shamir, expected to embark on trips abroad in the coming weeks, may be among the first to feel the impact of the move. (Atilla Shmolfavi)
