Histadrut labor union Chairman Ofer Eini and Federation of Israeli Chambers of Commerce President Uriel Lynn agreed to establish a joint committee to negotiate labor conflicts through direct dialogue, the two said Monday. Calling strikes a "last resort," Eini pledged the Histadrut would act as a "professional association free of political pretensions." Lynn said he favored wage raises that would not hurt the business sector. Eini and Lynn agreed that the workers need a responsible umbrella organization to represent their rights while striving to avoid damage to the economy.
