Histadrut threatens strike over Mega branch closures

The Histadrut Labor Federation is threatening a strike on supermarket chain Mega over plans to close several branches and fire dozens of workers.

Though early reports suggested that ten stores would close and hundreds would lose their jobs, Mega maintained that just 5 branches would close, leading to 65 layoffs.

The five branches in question are Beitar Ilit, Netivot, Yavne, Kiryat Yam and Or Akiva.
