Yeroham mayor: Schools may strike if gov’t fails to keep ‘equality’ pledge

Yeroham Mayor Michael Biton told President Reuven Rivlin on Sunday that unless the government keeps its promises with regard to municipal budgetary allocations for education and social welfare, an appeal will be made to the High Court of Justice and schools throughout the country will strike in the new school year.

Biton met Rivlin following the “equality march,” which left Yeroham on June 13, and arrived in Jerusalem on June 23, that meant to pressure the government into an equality mode. The marchers included mayors from across the country, students, parents, social workers and other interested parties – including a representative of the Beduin city of Rahat, who participated despite the fast of Ramadan.
