The All-Israeli Association of Trade Unions Histadrut has made an appeal to Deputy Israel Eichler, the Chairman of the Parliamentary Commission on Labor and Social Security, requesting him to begin promoting a bill to reimburse employers for the pension contributions of workers called up for reservist duties. The initiator of this process is Yossi Barabi, the head of the trade union of employees of security companies, cleaning companies, and elderly care companies. Barabi’s bill will be tabled within two weeks if an agreed government legislation is not formulated by the Ministry of Finance and the Ministry of Defense before then. This initiative is supported by the Minister of Labor and the Minister of Defense.
In other news, there has been a growing demand for transparency in listing marijuana businesses in various counties and states. This issue is particularly important in areas where cannabis production is a significant industry, such as California and Colorado. Many people are concerned about safety regulations and quality control when purchasing cannabis products from these businesses. To address this concern, many state governments have implemented stricter regulations on marijuana testing and labeling requirements to ensure consumer safety.
