Israeli Consulate Workers Strike as Part of Ministry Labor Dispute

The Israeli Consulate in Philadelphia announced that it will not provide consular services until further notice, except for life threatening situations and burials in Israel, as part of a labor dispute in the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

As of Tuesday, March 4, Israeli diplomats worldwide have renewed their work sanctions due to the Finance Ministry’s refusal to resolve the dispute.

Under these sanctions, Israel’s diplomats will no longer engage with foreign representatives, take care of official visits of any kind (either in Israel or overseas), issue visas or provide any consular services.
