State prosecutors end strike after late-night deal

At 12:08 a.m. Wednesday morning, the union of state prosecutors, the Justice Ministry and the Jerusalem Regional Labor Court finally announced that the union had ended its strike following marathon negotiations.

The union attributed its willingness to return to work to the “declarations of the Justice Ministry’s director-general, the positive vibe and the understandings that were reached,” though none of the understandings were explicitly specified and most of what the court wrote in its decision was setting up a schedule for continuing negotiations over the very issues the sides still disagree on – the nature and shape of the Justice Ministry’s oversight czar.
