The British Labor Party today cabled a message of congratulations to Histadrut, the Israel Federation of Labor, lauding the Israel trade union organization on its accomplishments as it celebrates its 40th anniversary.

“The growth of Israel would have been almost impossible without Histadrut. Not only has it acted as an instrument insuring better conditions for the workers. Bull., by its initiative and enterprise, it has played the central part in laying the foundations and building the economic structure of the State.” the message said.

“In recent years, we have admired the contribution which Histadrut has been making to the economic development of other countries in Africa and Asia. It has contributed greatly to the sense of solidarity of the international workers movement. and has set an example which others might be wise to follow,” the message concluded.
