Israel - Good news for striking social workers (2012)

In March, a three week strike by social workers over pay scales and wages ended after the Social Workers’ Union accepted the deal agreed upon by representatives of Histadrut - General Federation of Labour in Israel and the Finance Ministry 12 weeks previously with only minor changes. It is noteworthy to mention that the Histadrut did not include these workers with other public sector workers who are covered by the aforementioned public sector agreement in order to provide them with a substantial wage increase and auxiliary benefits.
