Flour Mill Workers in Israel win significant wage increase

Printer-friendly version

The food workers union of the Histadrut has negotiated a new collective agreement for some 1,000 workers in Israel's flour milling industry. The agreement provides for a wage increase of NIS 186 (approximately US$53), which, for workers earning the minimum wage, amounts to an almost 5% increase in monthly wages.

Furthermore, the agreement stipulates that this negotiated increase shall not be used to avoid paying any future increase whether in the form of cost-of-living adjustments or generally negotiated wage increases. In the event that the government raises the minimum wage during the validity of the agreement (until April 2015), flour mill workers' wages will be increased by the percentage of the minimum wage increase.
