Struggle intensifies at Pelephone as Bezeq workers join the fight

In an inspiring example of solidarity, organized workers at Bezeq, the Israeli telecommunications giant, have joined up with those fighting for union recognition and a contract at Pelephone, the mobile carrier.

According to a report in Globes last week, the Bezeq workers “are joining the strike by employees at subsidiary Pelephone Communications Ltd., the Histadrut (General Federation of Labor in Israel) announced today. Tomorrow [27.12], Bezeq employees will join a demonstration by Pelephone employees, and on Sunday, Bezeq’s workers committee will hold explanation meetings. The Histadrut said that other workers committees would later join the struggle in solidarity.”

The Histadrut’s statement is available in Hebrew only, here.
