Histadrut Plans to Transfer Its European Office from London to Belgium

Histadrut, Israel’s labor federation, will transfer its European office from London to Brussels soon. The organization’s current European representative. Ell Marx, is concluding his four-year tour and will be succeeded by Hana Lehmann.

In Tel Aviv, Israel Stolarsky, associate director of the National Committee for Labor-Israel in the United States, speaking at a symposium on the Histadrut yesterday, said American Jewish and non-Jewish circles want Histadrut to increase its activities in the U.S.

Mr. Stolarsky said American trade unions are increasingly adopting Histadrut activities in various fields such as housing and adult education. Joshua Levi, Histradut treasurer, reported that 100 Histadrut campaign leaders would visit Israel soon to see Histadrut and Israeli institutions.
