Today (Tuesday), Israel’s national trade union center (Histadrut) announced that it has reached an agreement with Teva Pharmaceuticals and only 120 employees will be fired. It was also decided that the employees will only be fired after the holidays.
At the beginning of the week, the company’s factory in Israel stopped operating after 150 dismissal letters were handed out and both sides blamed each other for the crisis. Histadrut Chairman Avi Nissenkorn intervened in the crisis, and a compromise was reached in which the management agreed to suspend the hearing before dismissal, in return for the employees’ full return to work in the factory.
