The Histadrut declared a labor dispute in Zap Group: lack of progress in negotiations

The Histadrut declared a labor dispute in Zap Group, in view of the impasse and lack of progress in negotiations with the management for a new collective agreement to apply to about 500 employees of the company.
Zap Group employees were incorporated into the Histadrut two years ago, following their disappointment with an agreement signed under the National Histadrut. The workers decided to join the General Histadrut in order to improve their working conditions, most notably their job security. The agreement was valid under the National Federation in January 2019, and negotiations have been underway since the first agreement to be led by the Cellular, Internet and High-Tech Workers Association, led by Pioneer Yaki.
Over the past year, the company's management has been reluctant to approach its dedicated employees and has not made significant progress in its positions. Negotiations were dragged on for months, during which an agreement was signed until various dates, which were never respected. Many meetings were canceled or ended without progress or a clear position.
About a month ago, after another executive's return from the agreements reached, the workers' committee held an information meeting and announced that it was considering declaring a labor dispute. In response, the company's CEO promised to sit down immediately for a marathon with a view to reaching agreement on the outline of the agreement soon. However, in practice, there was only one meeting that did not bear fruit.
It should be emphasized that during the entire negotiation period, the workers' committee conducted restraint and patience and avoided unilateral moves. In light of the fact that two years have passed since the union was incorporated, and without any real progress on the horizon, it was decided to declare a labor dispute that would allow employees to take organizational steps. The company is chaired by the Histadrut Histadrut in Petah Tikva, Giora Nahum, which accompanies the Zapp Employees Association alongside the Cellular, Internet and High Tech Workers Union.
Zapp Group Chairman of the Board, Tikva Bremer, said: "We call on the management of the company to gather, sit with us in good faith and soon reach agreements and sign a collective agreement. The committee and the Histadrut are not interested in escalating, but are determined to fight for what is coming and promised to the company's employees. "Our way is through dialogue, but Zapp's management cannot continue to ignore our demands. If necessary, we will struggle to have our voice heard."
Zap Group, located in Petah Tikva, offers advertising services to businesses and employees in the areas of service, sales, advertising and website building.
