Histadrut, Treasury to pull all-nighter to avoid strike

Tomorrow's general strike will begin at 6am and include the banks, TASE, public transport, local authorities and government ministries.

Sources inform ''Globes'' that the Ministry of Finance is preparing to pull an all-nighter in a last-ditch effort to prevent tomorrow's general strike called by Histadrut chairman Ofer Eini in support of contract workers.

The Ministry of Finance's security staff has been asked to stay at their posts all night, along with the spokesman's staff, and all top ministry officials.

Tomorrow's general strike will begin at 6 am. Banks, the Bank of Israel, the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange (TASE), buses, railways, the courts, national parks, local authorities, and government ministries will be shut down. Public hospitals and Magen David Adom will operate on Saturday schedules. Seaports and Ben Gurion Airport will be closed between 6 am and noon.
