General Strike? Will it impact TLV?

The Histradut has called a General Strike for this week - Wed. I think.

Does anyone have any information?

Will it close Ben Gurion?

It certainly seemed there was a strike today! Upon landing, during the busiest time of the day, I saw 6 lines open at passport control! For 10 minutes, I couldn't even enter the room!
I was on the moving sidewalk, and at the end, we kinda needed to turn around and use it like a treadmill because there was no room to get off.

But it all worked out in the end

the lines at passport control do seem longer in general...the staff seem somewhat slower...45 minutes plus sometimes..

Strike Called for Mon Nov 7

Looks like it back on again:

http://www.globes.co.il/serveen/glob...95044&fid=1725

"The strike will cover airports, seaports, local authorities, government ministries, and other public institutions. The Histadrut also intends to extend the strike to private employers. A detailed list is expected on Sunday."

I am supposed to fly out on CO Monday night - should I try to change to Sunday?
