UK trade unionists visit Israeli and Palestinian counterparts

TUFI was established to strengthen the links between the Histadrut (the Israeli TUC), the Palestinian General Federation of Trade Unions (PGFTU) and the British Trade Union Movement.

A delegation of British trade unionists is completing a visit to Israel and Palestine to meet with representatives from those trade union federations. They have been blogging about their visit here.

Among other things, they note the lack of support among Palestinian trade unionists for a boycott of Israel on the grounds that it would hurt Palestinian workers.
