Five people drowned in Israel over the weekend, and another was seriously injured when more than 200 lifeguards refused to show up for work because of an ongoing wage dispute, officials said Sunday. Twelve swimmers have died, and 23 have suffered injuries on Israeli beaches since May 1, when the lifeguards began a partial strike to demand a 30% increase in salaries, said Hili Goldstein, assistant director-general of the Center for Local Authority, an umbrella group of municipalities.

Los Angeles County lifeguards will continue to patrol state-owned beaches for at least another six months under an agreement approved Tuesday by the county Board of Supervisors. The county had threatened to pull its lifeguards and maintenance crews from eight state-owned beaches, including Manhattan Beach, Malibu and Topanga, by July 1 if the state did not allocate more money to help cover the cost of services.

Lifeguard Lee Jacobs rescued two beach-goers on Thursday. A few hours later, he was the one feeling stranded. Jacobs, a 24-year-old graduate of UC Riverside, belongs to a new labor union of seasonal lifeguards in Huntington Beach seeking recognition from City Hall. The 75-member group, calling itself the Surf City Lifeguards Employee Assn., formally submitted a petition Tuesday asking the city for formal recognition by Thursday.

Seasonal lifeguards will vote today on whether they want union representation. The Surf City Lifeguards Employee Assn. decided to conduct the vote at the Huntington Beach Lifeguard Headquarters despite its disagreement with the city over how many votes are needed to secure union representation. Richard Silber, attorney representing seasonal lifeguards, contends that a majority of those who cast their votes would be sufficient.
