Knesset Cafeteria Workers to Keep Their Jobs

Thanks to a SHATIL-coordinated effort along with the Direct Employment Coalition, Knesset cafeteria workers no longer need to worry about layoffs during the recess and election.

SHATIL’s lobbying team helped persuade the Knesset to announce that it would enforce a clause providing additional compensation to the cafeteria operator for not laying off workers during Knesset recesses; and that consequently, there are no plans to terminate employment of any current cafeteria workers during the run up to the election. Additionally, the Coalition recently held a conference bringing together subcontracted workers unions to mutually promote their goals.
