Pelephone Strikers: Bonuses Withheld; Violence


The Histadrut Labor Federation reported, Monday, that a member of the workers' committee at the logistics center of the Pelephone cellular telephone service was hit by thugs hired by management, early Monday afternoon, after he came with a group of workers to protest that annual bonuses had not been paid to striking workers and that payment of the bonuses was tied to the end of the strike.

The union said it would not let the violence against employees and the non-payment of bonuses pass.
