UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. (Sep. 14)
The International Labor Organization has placed 23 Israelis in worker-trainee positions with industrial firms in the last three years.
The ILO reported today that a total of 687 worker-trainees from six different member countries have been given on-the-job training and “show-how” in various countries. Ten of the worker-trainees in this year’s program are from Israel. In 1953 and 1954, 18 Israelis benefited from this ILO program which is financed by the United Nations expanded technical assistance program. This year’s group of Israelis have been assigned to plants mainly to Turkey and Yugoslavia while previously they had been sent chiefly to Sweden and Switzerland.
