The Histadrut demands from the scouts 1.4 NIS million

Posted on Sep 17, 2019 by Ifi Reporter

The Histadrut applied to the Tel Aviv Regional Labor Court against the Scout Movement and a NIS 1,400,000 compensation claim in light of the banned, blunt and ongoing attempts by the movement's management to thwart the organization of its workers in the Histadrut. This is a claim filed by the Histadrut as early as July 2018 and is now seeking to resume its hearing and give a verdict in the case.
The Scout Movement employs some 700 young workers over the age of 21, who have been in distress due to their managerial attitude and the unjust conditions of wages they practice. In order to improve the terms of their employment, they were incorporated into the Histadrut in 2017, but as soon as the Scout Movement became aware of its employees' organization, rather than enter into negotiations with them and respect their wishes as required by law, the executives began to thwart the organization while devising plans for harming and eliminating it. One after the other.
According to the request, the movement used illegitimate and illegal means to thwart the organization through employee publications, hurting committee members, recruiting close associates to thwart the organization, attempting to fire a committee and more.
Although at one point negotiations between the parties began, the movement's management made sure to stave off many difficulties in coordinating meetings between the parties, standing up to cutting rights and arguing idly for economic incompetence. All this while the Histadrut conducted the negotiations consistently and matters with the desire to reach the Equal Valley. The consent of the movement that there is room for action to improve the working conditions and wages of the employees
In the end, it became clear that the negotiations conducted by the parties were nothing more than a smokescreen designed to blind workers, the Histadrut and the Tribunal and disguise the true intentions of the Scout movement - thwarting the organization. Needless to say, the conduct of this movement also prevented the granting of employment rights and security. Employees, who are traditionally and faithfully used as messengers for the education of children and youth who are educated in the movement, after the terms of employment between the parties were agreed and it seemed that the agreement was already about to be signed, on the eve of signing the agreement, the Scouts movement returned and refused to sign it.
Against this backdrop, Adv. Gil Bar-Tal, chairman of the Ma'aleh Histadrut, which accompanies the Scout Movement's employees, has renewed the lawsuit in violation of collective bargaining law law. From the legal branch of the trade union division, the Tribunal was asked to determine that the Scout Movement would be charged NIS 1.4 million in compensation for injury to workers, injury to the organization, conducting unfair negotiations, and contradictory statements that resulted in the dismantling of the organization.
Attorney Gil Bar-Tal, Chairman of the Ma'ale Histadrut, said: "There are no words that can express my surprise and disappointment with the viewers' behavior. We have made great efforts to reach an agreement that benefits employees, improves their rights and protects the job security of young, idealistic and talented people. I had hoped to be collaborative but discovered the latest conduct of employers and the absolute collapse of values. I am sure that the Tribunal will make the right decision and require the Scout Movement to sign a long-term collective bargaining agreement to protect workers' rights and representation. The Maof Histadrut will cooperate throughout the future labor relations system. "
