Summit on Contract Labor Monday Evening

Chairman Ofir Eini of the Histadrut Labor Federation is scheduled to meet with Chairman Gal Hershkowitz of the Budget Branch of the Treasury and Chairman Shraga Brosh of the Coordinating Committee of the Economic Organizations in what is being described as a decisive discussion on the matter of labor contracted to the public and private sector through personnel agencies. The leaders will be backed by their professional staffs.

The practice has been criticized because the employee hired in this fashion does not have social benefits or job security. The issue was behind the recent threat of general strikes, which were not allowed by the National Labor Court.
