WAC delegation meets union representatives and leftwing leaders in the Netherlands and Denmark

At the beginning of October 2012, a delegation of the Workers Advice Center (WAC-Maan) visited Denmark and the Netherlands to strengthen ties with local unions there. Delegation members included WAC executive director Assaf Adiv and a representative of the Salit Quarries workers, Niaz Kadadha, from ’Atara, near Ramallah in the West Bank. The delegation emphasized WAC’s uniqueness as a union developed in partnership by Jews and Arabs, committed to struggling for every worker regardless of his or her religious or ethnic background.


The Israeli Government Report in response to OECD’s 16 recommendations on Welfare and Labour contains much talk, but little willingness for action

Much Ado about Nothing. While the OECD delegation was visiting Israel in September 2012, I was asked to present my view as a representative of WAC regarding the progress made in the labor market. The following remarks were made on the booklet which was prepared by the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Employment, under the title “Progress Report in applying the OECD Recommendations on the labor market and social policy”(June 2012, page 175).

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.

We invite you:

To march with us in protests and to build an alternative, democratic, Jewish-Arab professional union in Israel. Join our quiet WhatsApp group today, "Marching with us in protest."
