      Histadrut Health Fund Executives Cutting Salaries

      Executives of the Clalit Health Fund, run by the Histadrut, are cutting their own wages by 10 percent while laying off 3,000 workers, according to Globes. The pay cut will amount to five percent of the executives’ salaries and is smaller than wage reductions that have been carried out in several private companies.

      The Clalit workers’ committee has disputed the proposed layoffs, which have been suspended pending the outcome of talks.
