West Canadian Zionists Demand Gan Sharon Manager Accede to Histadruth Demands

The Western Canadian Zionist shareholders in the orange groves in Gan Sharon, Palestine, where the Histadruth and Revisionist workers are now on a strike as a protst against the employment of Arab labor which undercuts them, have cabled to the manager of the groves, Max Adilman, insisting that he come to terms with the Histadruth, Palestine Labor Federation.

The President of the Zionist Organization of Canada, A. J. Freiman is likewise making an effort to effect a settlement.

The Gan Sharon orange groves were purchased with funds raised by Canadian Zionists.

The strike there was declared on December 21st. The Western Canadian Zionists had previously cabled Mr. Adilman, urging him to fulfill the conditions of the Histadruth, they declared. This request was however ignored.
