MAI to be hit by strikes
Workers at Makhteshim-Agan Industries (MAI) subsidiary plants in Ashdod, Israel intend to go on strike. No date has yet been set for strikes, MAI says. The intended strikes have been called by two unions at the insecticide and fungicide plant, Makhteshim Chemical Works, and at the herbicide manufacturer, Agan Chemical Manufacturer. The company is in takeover talks (see this issue).
