      Histadrut Operates Emergency-Time Workers' Hotline


      The Histadrut Labor Federation has opened a national hotline with emergency-time information for workers and reserves soldiers. The number is 1-700-700-331. It operates Sunday through Thursday from 8:00 to 16:00 and is staffed by Hebrew-Arabic and Russian-speaking members of the federation's professional-union staff. If needed, the hotline hours will be expanded.

      The hotline is intended to address issues of workers' rights during an emergency, including hiring and firing, rights during reserves and expenses for employees on leave, among others. The Histadrut also has a section on its Facebook page devoted to the subject.
