THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

Striking Drivers Halt Tel Aviv Buses

TEL AVIV (JTA) — Long
queues formed at bus stops
throughout the greater Tel
Aviv area this week but
buses were few and far be-
tween.
A strike by 160 drivers
against the Dan transport
cooperative which operates
buses in and around Israel's
largest city paralyzed ser-
vice.
The co-op recruited all
members, including retired
drivers, to staff the buses
during rush hour, but many
vehicles remained idle. The
strikers are demanding ad-
ditional allowances beyond
the 70 per cent wage in-
creases they have received
over the last two years.
It appeared, meanwhile,
that Israeli high school
pupils will have an extended
summer vacation. Prepara-
tions to open school Sept. 1

were suspended due to a
strike by high school teach-
ers and principals for a high
er wage scale.
