Some employees of the veteran daily Jerusalem Post have barricaded themselves in the building, after talks with the management broke down on the dismissal of 23 out of the paper's 32 print workers. The newspaper may suffer from disruptions, especially if the protesting workers carry out threats to bring in their families to share the protest from Sunday. Moshe Malka, the chairman of the Post's labor committee, says that for three days the print workers have been coming to work, only to find their access barred by a guard. He said that the paper will be printed at two external establishments, one in Petah Tikvah and one in Ramallah. "We were 70 workers about two years ago," Malka said, "and every few months we agreed to a limited number of dismissals. The management wants to leave nine tenured workers and to employ temps as necessary, and hasn't agreed to our proposed solution." The workers contacted the Histadrut labor federation. Its representative, Danny Ben Sheetrit, started talks with Post Mark Ziman, but he says the talks broke down on the management's unwillingness to meet the workers halfway. Ben Sheetrit said he recommended that they strike. No comment could be obtained from Ziman.
