A rather acrimonious dispute has developed here between the municipality of Tel Aviv, the all-Jewish city, and the labor exchange of the General Federation of Jewish Labor. The disagreement resulted from the labor exchange’s rejection of the municipality’s distribution of contracts for the construction of the city’s new abattoir.
The labor exchange claims that the bulk of the work has been awarded to private contractors. Both sides to the dispute have published statements, the municipality warning unauthorized laborers to leave the premises and the General Federation of Jewish Labor ordering a stoppage of work until the dispute is settled.
