Cabinet to Improve Conditions for Contract Workers

The cabinet is expected, Sunday, to approve application of its collective bargaining agreement with the Histadrut Ha'ovdim (Workers Federation) to improve conditions for cleaning and security personnel hired on a contractual basis.

Under terms of the agreement, which was signed in recent weeks, cleaning and security workers employed directly by the state receive 4,500 shekels a month and their supervisors receive 4,700 shekels, subject to updates.
