Histadrut Grants Druze Workers Full Status in Labor Federation

Download PDF for this date

Histadrut’s central committee has decided to grant Druze workers full status within Israel’s labor federation. The decision will integrate the 60,000 Druze trade union members on all levels and grant them their own labor councils in their villages, independent of the central committee. Druze cooperatives will be directly under Histadrut’s cooperative center and not under the special Druze department as it has been.
