A historic collective agreement signed by MAAN in Rajwan Food co. in Atarot industrial zone, Jerusalem

On Sunday, March 7, MAAN-Workers Association, signed a collective agreement with the Rajwan Food Production Company (the company’s official name – RS Food Import and Production Ltd.). The trade union has signed two previous agreements in Area C. This third agreement in a company that emloys mainly Palestinian workers is different as it is the first collective agreement signed a company inside Israel that works under the regualations of the Payment Authoruty.

For years, Palestinians toiling in the industrial zones of West Bank settlements have been subject to exploitation and denial of their rights. A collective agreement signed on February 14, 2017 proves that another way is possible. In this precedential step, the Zarfati Garage signed a collective agreement with WAC-MAAN which covers all 75 workers at the plant and compensates the Palestinians among them for the previous period, when their rights had been denied.




Road haulage company, Movilei Dror, recognises WAC-MAAN workers union as the legitimate representative of its lorry drivers. Negotiations between the two sides will commence Sep 17th

WAC MAAN director Assaf Adiv: We are entering a negotiation process with the management, and we are doing this with a positive attitude. We believe we can reach a collective agreement that will secure drivers’ rights and compensate them for past wrongs. Having said that, should it become clear that the management remains unmoved by the drivers’ demands, we will not hesitate to re-establish a workplace dispute and consider strike action.

As an organization committed to the rights of workers without distinction of religion, race, nationality, gender, or profession - democracy is our essence. We strongly oppose the authoritarian laws that the extreme government of Netanyahu, Lapid, Bennett, and Smotrich is attempting to impose.

Without democracy, there are no workers' rights, just as a workers' organization cannot exist under dictatorship.

only a victory of the democratic camp will enable a discussion on the Palestinian issue and lead to an alternative solution to occupation and apartheid while ensuring human rights and citizenship for all, Israelis and Palestinians alike. As long as the apartheid regime persists, the democratic camp will not succeed in defeating Israeli extremists. Therefore, we work to involve the Arab and Palestinian society in the protest.
