Labor Court to Hear Histadrut Petition Against Pelephon

The Tel Aviv regional labor court has scheduled an urgent hearing for Friday morning on a petition filed, Thursday afternoon by the Histadrut Labor Federation to issue an injunction against the management of the Pelephon cellular telephone company to keep it from distributing forms waiving an employee's membership in the Histadrut and having the employees sign those forms.

The union says it's an attempt the workers from exercising their legal democratic right to organize. A statement by the Histadrut said, "We hope that the urgency with which the court scheduled the hearing indicates that the court feels the matter must be clarified in a hurry."
