(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

The accusation against the Jewish Federation of Labor that it “evades the task of organizing the Arab workers,” letting them thus become a “prey to the Arab bourgeoisie” was formulated by George Nassar, Arab labor leader in an open letter published in the Hebrew and Arab press.

In an official statement published in reply to the accusation, the Jewish Federation of Labor declares, citing many instances to substantiate the statement, that it has “often helped the Arab workers while on strike but the task of organization should be their own.”
