      Pay Hikes for Sunfrost Workers

      The Histadrut Labor Federation signed a new collective-bargaining agreement, Monday, with management of the T'nuva agricultural cooperative's Sunfrost frozen foods factory in the Haifa-area town of Migdal Ha'emek.

      The agreement calls for a grant of 2,000 shekels in January of 2012 and pay hikes totalling 13 percent by the end of 2014. The minimum monthly wage of NIS 4,250 is scheduled to rise to 4,400 shekels in October 2013.
