Arnon Bar-David: Legislation against workers is nothing more than a cynical endeavor
“There is no chance that bills that harm the workers’ organizations will pass the Knesset,” Histadrut chairman Arnon Bar-David said a short time ago, at the beginning of the signing ceremony for a collective agreement for Israel Railways workers. “These attempts are idle attempts that we know from recent years. We have managed to take down such proposals in the past,” said the Chairman of the Histadrut, adding: “There is always an element in the Knesset that will try to pass such laws.” “Today, the Histadrut is in the first rank of decision-makers in the country, and we are part of all the parties in Israel. There is no chance that such legislation will pass. I know they are trying to put it on the agenda, but it is nothing more than a cynical attempt.”
