Israel - Collective bargaining – fear of reprisals (2010)

The Histadrut Transport Workers’ Union is in dispute with truck drivers’ employers over their refusal to increase the wages of truckers, who have to work long hours to make up the shortfall. While the union has negotiated a collective bargaining agreement that covers truck drivers who are employed by the Israel Road Transport Board (ITB), around 80% of drivers in Israel remain unorganised for fear of employer reprisals. As a result, the Histadrut Transport Workers’ Union is undertaking an organising campaign.
