Mizrachi Trade Unions Join Histadrut; Get Representation

Download PDF for this date

An agreement for entrance of the Mizrachi Workers’ Party trade unions into the Histadrut. Israel’s general federation of labor, was signed here this week-end. Hapoel Hamizrachi representatives will now take their place on the governing bodies of the Histadrut.

In the past, the religious laborites maintained their own trade union organizations, but under a special agreement enabled their members to join the national medical and hospitalization service maintained for its members by the Histadrut.
