UK Trade Union Congress rejects Israeli goods boycott

Britain's Trade Union Congress (TUC) voted to reject a boycott of Israeli goods on Tuesday, following a campaign launched by the Palestine Solidarity Campaign to encourage the action against Israel.
Following the resolution, Board of Deputies President and Jewish Leadership Council (JLC) Chairman Vivian Wineman, together with Mick Davis, Chairman of the JLC Executive Committee said:
"The TUC today rejected a general boycott of Israeli goods, despite the efforts of the Palestine Solidarity Campaign. This is good news, and a serious setback for the pro-boycott movement. We recognise the efforts of serious Trade Unions, the TUC and international TUC leaders in opposing this divisive measure."
