According to the agreement, signed by the Association of Security, Cleaning and Nursing Care in the Histadrut and the organization of cleaning companies in Israel, workers in the industry will earn at least 22% -42% above the minimum wage in the economy. Histadrut Chairman Arnon Bar-David: “A correct and important move designed to strengthen the weakened workers in the economy, who are at low wage levels”

The Security, Cleaning and Nursing Association of the Histadrut and the Organization of Cleaning Companies in Israel this week signed a general collective agreement at the Histadrut in Tel Aviv that includes, among other things, wage updates, an increased holiday gift and meal subsidies for employees.

The agreement will apply to all employers in the cleaning industry in Israel who are currently members of the cleaning companies’ organization or will join the organization as members during the validity of the agreement, which is conditional on the issuance of an extension order and its publication in Reshumot.

According to the agreement, a full-time employee will be entitled to a minimum monthly salary of NIS 6,552 or 22% above the minimum wage as updated from time to time – whichever is higher. The salary of a part-time employee will be calculated in proportion to the part-time job.

A salaried employee will be entitled to a minimum hourly rate of NIS 36 or 22% above the minimum wage in the economy as updated from time to time – whichever is higher. The salary of a part-time employee will be calculated in proportion to the part-time job.

A professional employee (for example, a car operator for cleaning and tidying streets; a professional window cleaner) full-time will be entitled to a minimum monthly salary of NIS 7,098 or 32% above the minimum wage in the economy. A salaried professional employee will be entitled to a minimum hourly rate of NIS 39, or 32% above the hourly minimum wage.

A full-time cleaning supervisor (direct supervisor of other cleaning workers) will be entitled to a minimum monthly wage of NIS 7,644, or 42% above the minimum wage. A paid cleaning inspector will be entitled to a minimum hourly rate of NIS 42, or 42% above the hourly minimum wage.

It was also determined that the seniority supplement will be paid as part of the industry minimum wage, at a rate of 2%, instead of the existing supplement set at a maximum rate of 46 agorot per hour of work. It was also agreed that the amount of the holiday gift will be updated and will be NIS 250 per employee (per holiday).

In workplaces where the service customer’s employees are entitled to meal subsidies, cleaning workers who actually perform their work at the same workplace will be entitled to a meal subsidy arrangement in the same manner and under the same amounts and conditions as the service customer’s employees, including food purchase tickets. It was also clarified that the accumulation of the employee’s sick days will be according to the seniority in the workplace or with the customer of the service or with the employer, whichever is higher.

Histadrut Chairman Arnon Bar-David: “The agreement signed today is a correct and important move designed to strengthen the weakened workers in the economy, who are at low wage levels. I call on all employers to work with us to reduce unemployment in Israel and improve the conditions of the weakened workers, especially in light of the severe shortage of manpower that is even more pronounced in the Corona crisis. I would like to congratulate Yossi Barbie, the organization of cleaning companies and all those involved in the craft on the investment and dedication on the way to achieving this important agreement. The Histadrut will continue to work for the underprivileged populations in Israel. ”
