Israel lays open to attacks by trade unions

Having failed initially to extort employment concessions from the government, Histadrut has declared a general strike, which includes most government and municipal agencies.

As usual, the government will eventually give in. Which raises the question, what are the limits of the trade union’s influence? Being a monopoly, they can naturally extort virtually anything from the government, so there is no theoretical limit to their demands.

But our socialist government refuses to take the only step needed to solve the crisis: subject trade unions to the same anti-monopoly laws that govern the rest of the country.
