WAC-MAAN’s General Assembly for 2013 will take place on Sat. 15.6. Representatives from existing workers’ committees will attend, as well as persons involved in new organizing initiatives to form such committees. The versatile group organized within WAC-MAAN represents its progressive social and political orientation, making it a leading factor in the struggle for social justice, equality and peace.

While the Histadrut separates issues of wages and labor rights from the wider social and political context, turning a blind eye as employers and the government smash the rights of certain sectors, WAC-MAAN carries a vision of solidarity among workers beyond national and sectorial borders.

   

The program of the General Assembly:

  • An introductory note by Asma Aghbarieh Zahalka – leader of WAC-MAAN
  • WAC-MAAN as a leading player for social change: Introduction by WAC MAAN National Coordinator Assaf Adiv
  • Panel with representatives of workers’ committees, including: Musrara teachers; Minshar teachers; teachers of the visual theatre school; teachers of the Sapir technological college; the workers’ committee of the music center in Rosh Ha’ayin; workers of Jana beverage factory in upper Nazareth; Palestinian workers of the Levi Metal factory in Mishor Adumim; team of the social workers’ struggle; workers of the Israel Antiquities Authority from East Jerusalem. Hosted by Nir Nader, WAC-MAAN Tel-Aviv coordinator.
  • Annual reports for 2012 and action plan for next year; the comptroller committee report; budget; and election of WAC-MAAN committees.

Comment: the assembly is open to all members of WAC-MAAN, but only elected representatives of workers’ committees are allowed to vote.

Despite the crisis, the government is severely undermining its own five-year plan for East Jerusalem. MAAN Workers Association (hence MAAN) calls on the mayor and the incoming city council to secure budgets to reduce socio-economic gaps in the city.

The War in Gaza Brings Severe Poverty and Despair to the West Bank

Journalist Hagar Sheizaf of Haaretz collaborated with MAAN to give a compelling presentation on the dire situation of Palestinian workers out of work for four months due to the war. Sheizaf quotes Assaf Adiv, MAAN’s Executive Director and also workers affiliated with MAAN who worked in Israel for dozens of years. These workers bare no responsibility for the October 7 terrorist attack, yet they pay the price. All of them demand to go back to their work places in Israel for the benefit of all.

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."

To join MAAN and unite workers in your workplace. Read here how to join the organization.

To follow MAAN's work on social networks.

Please write your full name, phone number, and a brief description of the subject of your inquiry, and a representative from our organization will get back to you as soon as possible.
