Judge orders ‘sick’ light rail drivers back to work after train service halted

A Jerusalem District Labor Court judge ordered light rail drivers who staged a de facto strike on Tuesday by claiming to be ill amid heated salary negotiations, to return to work immediately.

Disruptions on the light rail substantially escalated Tuesday, after a third of the drivers called in sick, halting nearly all train service, Globes reported.

“It would be odd to say that all the drivers being sick at the same time was a coincidence,” Judge Sarah Shdeour said in her ruling, Globes reported.
