Junior staff strike at Hebrew University

Junior staff at all the Hebrew University of Jerusalem campuses started striking on Sunday, with no end in sight unless the university agrees to its demands.

According to the Non-Tenured Research and Academic Staff Union at the Hebrew University, 80 junior staff members are due to be fired at the end of the year, a move the group sees as part of a trend of a shrinking Humanities Faculty at the university, and one it has fought over for the past three years.

The strike will affect this week, the last week of studies at the university, and if it continues, will also affect the examination period at the university, with junior staff refusing to mark exams and final papers.
