Histadrut-mapai and Mapam Conclude Agreement for United Policy in Municipalities

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

The executive of the Histadrut, Israel’s federation of labor, announced today the conclusion of an agreement between the Histadrut-Mapai and the Mapam for “concerted action” in newly-elected municipalities.

The agreement provides for a united, labor and progressive policy in all recently-returned municipalities, envisaging individual coalitions between the two labor movements with other parties or lists, wherever feasible, for presentation of a united labor front.

The agreement also stipulates that whenever local differences arise between the two contracting parties, “the issue will be referred to a central combined committee, sitting within the Histadrut, for ultimate jurisdiction.”
