IMPACT – MEDIUM
What is the change? Workers at the Ministry of Interior office in Tel Aviv have gone on strike for the second time this week. The duration of the strike is not yet known.
What does the change mean? Immigration services will be unavailable at the Tel Aviv office during the strike. Employers should expect delays in processing.
Background: The Ministry of Interior office in Tel Aviv is the agency’s largest. Workers went on strike Wednesday for the second time this week under a directive issued by a labor union representing government workers. All services have been suspended and processing delays should be expected. Employers are also reminded that Ministry of Interior offices will be closed for much of October as Israel celebrates the Jewish holidays of Rosh Hashanah (New Year), Yom Kippur and Sukkot.
