  • Rate
Directed by: Unknown
Subtitles: English, Hebrew

Workers of the Ilin Industries plant, Israels first large car assembly plant, declare a strike, after management announced the dismissal of 110 employees from all departments, out of 470 workers of the plant, including veterans. The workers demand increased compensation for the fired employees, the factory management closed the factorys gates, and negotiations are underway between the factory management and the employees representatives. Workers are seen outside the factory area during a strike. The plant in Nesher will close in 1969 due to difficulties imposed by the Israeli government and bureaucracy on the Israeli automobile industry, as well as changes in the automotive industries whose vehicles were assembled at the factory (French automotive company Renault surrendered to the Arab boycott and ended its engagement with the factory, and production of two popular models, the Japanese Contessa and American Studebaker Lark, was discontinued at the respective car companies).
