One of the moves that will have the greatest impact on Israel's economy in the coming years was launched today with the meeting of Histadrut Chairman Arnon Bar-David and Finance Ministry Director General Shlomi Heisler, who met in Jerusalem and agreed to start a negotiation process to formulate a framework agreement for the public sector
. The professional teams: Acting Commissioner for Wages and Employment Agreements Efi Malkin, Commissioner for Budgets Yogev Gerdos, Acting Chairman of the Histadrut Roi Yaakov and Deputy Director of Policy and Economics at the Histadrut Adam Blumenberg.
Director General of the Ministry of Finance Shlomi Heisler, who will lead the talks on behalf of the Ministry of Finance , and Histadrut chairman Arnon Bar-David concluded that the teams will conduct intensive negotiations with the goal of reaching an agreement.
It should be made clear that the agreements between the Ministry of Finance and the Histadrut have great significance regarding the stability of the economy in the coming years: on the one hand, the discussions are held against a background of rising inflation and an increase in the cost of living, which on the one hand increases the wage demands of the workers, but meets with uncertainty on the part of the employers (in this case, the State of Israel) .
On the other hand, the national interest is to formulate a comprehensive and long-term agreement, to prevent labor disputes and strikes that will lead to a lack of economic and social stability.
