Court to striking Maariv employees: Start the presses!

A Tel Aviv court ordered striking employees of the Israeli daily newspaper Maariv back to work.

A district court judge on Wednesday called the first work stoppage in the newspaper's 64-year history a "wildcat" strike and told the employees to file a complaint against the new management instead of making "their own rules."

The Hebrew-language paper was not printed Wednesday and its website NRG also was not updated.

The lead story on the NRG website on Wednesday reported on the employee strike. There was no mention of the U.S. presidential election.

The action comes following the newspaper's sale to Shlomo Ben Zvi, who the strikers say has violated the collective agreement he signed with them.

Ben Zvi said Tuesday that a percentage of the current employees would be absorbed into the new ownership's operation, but at a lower salary to be determined.

The workers said they would file a complaint in labor court.
