Ministry of Education and National Unity party slam court ploy to block strike

The Ministry of Education confirms in a statement that it does not support the state’s attempt to block a possible teachers’ strike by court order, saying that “legal threats will not help solve the education crisis. ‘education”.

The statement said most of the issues have already been resolved and the ministry will continue to work towards concluding the negotiations.

The statement highlights the tensions between the Department of Education and the Treasury, which led the talks and sought an injunction.

Education Minister Yifat Shasha-Biton’s National Unity Party issues a statement calling on Prime Minister Yair Lapid to convene the entire cabinet to find a solution, essentially asking that the responsibility be removed from the sole competence of the Finance Minister Avigdor Liberman.

“The Israeli government is responsible for the education system, not the labor court,” he says.

“The government should have met two weeks ago and not left students, parents and teachers in a state of uncertainty,” he says.
