The mayor, Joan Campolier, the councilor, Sílvia Vives, and the Tourism technician, Marc Juanola will meet with the leaders of the Histadrut trade union federation

In May of last year, Santa Susanna started a collaboration with the main federation of trade unions in Israel, Histadrut, so that its members knew the urban transformation model of the municipality and its compatibility with tourism development and the respect and protection of the agricultural sector. From that moment until now, a total of 1,050 Israelis have already visited the village, divided into 21 groups of around fifty people. It is the first phase of a project that will end up bringing to the municipality around 6,000 Israelis from the economic, educational, health fields, among others. It is a group of people with a great ability to create opinion in their country and which allows Santa Susanna to be known.

To further take advantage of the window that the relationship with Histadrut has opened and to strengthen and expand ties with Israel, Mayor Joan Campolier, Councilwoman Sílvia Vives, and Tourism technician Marc Juanola have traveled to Tel Aviv . It is the first stage of a three-day stay that will also take them to the cities of Jerusalem and Haifa, and the Galilee region.

Their hosts are the highest officials of the Histadrut trade union. With them, Campolier wants to explore new collaborations that will, among other things, make Santa Susanna a destination for the groups they represent.

Histadrut, the General Federation of Labor in Israel, is responsible for the professional and economic affairs of approximately 800,000 workers: organizing workers, representing workers, negotiating and signing collective agreements to improve conditions and guarantee job security in the workplace, promotion of pension rights and concern for the future of workers, women’s rights, pensioners and more.

The Histadrut has 28 sectoral and professional unions, and 29 offices throughout the country.
