      Histadrut Threatens Meuchedet Health Fund

      The chairman of the administrative workers's section of the Histadrut Labor Federation sent a letter to the executive director of the Meuchedet Health Fund, Monday morning, threatening to start sanctions against the health maintenance organization in the middle of October if it doesn't recognize the Histadrut as the representative of Meuchedet's 4,000 employees and open talks on a collective bargaining agreement.

      The workers organized under the Histadrut and established an employees committee.
