In addition, allegations are made of "lack of transparency and participation of the workers 'committee on welfare issues, use of disciplinary procedures in bad faith and arbitrarily, creating an unreasonable burden on workers as a result of workloads and lack of manpower, and attempting to harm the workers' committee and organizational force "Divide and rule" between the committee and the workers.

Chairman of the Teva Workers 'Committee, Eliran Kozlik: "The workers' committee has been very involved in the past year in rehabilitating the site. We all went ‘under the stretcher’ when on the management side there is no personal example at all. The management withdrew from the agreements, has been acting in bad faith for several months and is trying in every way to harm organized work while recruiting new employees at a higher salary than the old ones.
Despite many attempts to solve the problems and despite the fact that we have been acting for years as a 'responsible adult' in front of the management, we were left with no choice and decided to put an end to this conduct once and for all, and if necessary do not hesitate to disable the site. We will not allow the continued erosion of employee wages and the wage gaps created by management, while on the other hand it outsources positions. We will continue to stand up for the rights of the workers and the rights of the contractor's workers, who are also trying to harm them. "
