Industrial workers, teachers – Jews and Arabs
Uniting in the workers’ organization WAC-MAAN
Annual General Assembly of WAC-MAAN
Saturday, 15.6.2013, at Minshar School of the Arts in Tel-Aviv, at 11.00 am. No. 18, Chachami St., Tel-Aviv
WAC-MAAN’s General Assembly for 2013 will take place on Sat. 15.6. Representatives from existing workers’ committees will attend, as well as persons involved in new organizing initiatives to form such committees. The versatile group organized within WAC-MAAN represents its progressive social and political orientation, making it a leading factor in the struggle for social justice, equality and peace.
While the Histadrut separates issues of wages and labor rights from the wider social and political context, turning a blind eye as employers and the government smash the rights of certain sectors, WAC-MAAN carries a vision of solidarity among workers beyond national and sectorial borders.
The program of the General Assembly:
- An introductory note by Asma Aghbarieh Zahalka – leader of WAC-MAAN
- WAC-MAAN as a leading player for social change: Introduction by WAC MAAN National Coordinator Assaf Adiv
- Panel with representatives of workers’ committees, including: Musrara teachers; Minshar teachers; teachers of the visual theatre school; teachers of the Sapir technological college; the workers’ committee of the music center in Rosh Ha’ayin; workers of Jana beverage factory in upper Nazareth; Palestinian workers of the Levi Metal factory in Mishor Adumim; team of the social workers’ struggle; workers of the Israel Antiquities Authority from East Jerusalem. Hosted by Nir Nader, WAC-MAAN Tel-Aviv coordinator.
- Annual reports for 2012 and action plan for next year; the comptroller committee report; budget; and election of WAC-MAAN committees.
