Histradrut declares work dispute of Kupat Holim workers

May 2, 2013 14:22

A work dispute was declared by the Histadrut-General Labor Federation on Thursday after the "management of Kupat Holim Meuhedet told it and the works committee that it would renege on agreements reached during the past two years."

The Histdrut said another reason for the announcement was a "change for the worse" in management in dealing with the third-largest health fund’s workers and their rights and a unilateral structural change in the field of dental services" by the health fund. A Histadrut official said: "It can’t be that management wants to go two years backwards and renege on agreements already reached with us.

Ada Kamerski, chairman of medical institutions in the Histadrut, said the workers in Meuhedet "feel a lack of security as a result of problems and changes in the health fund’s administration."
