About

 

The General Federation of Students and Working Youth (NOAL) is the representative organization of the working youth in Israel, it was founded by a group of working teenagers in 1924. Due our duty we have great responsibility in shaping the children and youth work market. for instance, through signing collective work agreements for youth, or by involvement in the "Working Youth Council" established by virtue of the Youth Labour Law, 5713-1953, which advises the Minister of Industry, Trade & Labor in issues regarding the Law. In fact, the NOAL is the only organization in Israel that deals with child and youth labour today, especially in legal and paralegal counseling to working youngsters, who have been exploited by their employers. This assistance is provided today by over 60 volunteers and is free of charge.

The Goals of the NOAL

  1. .Widening the knowledge of youth regarding their work rights
  2. Shaping the children and youth work market by :

3. Developing new methods for trade union action in 21st century Israel.

Over 60 of these volunteers, nationwide, are committed to activity of the youth trade union, which includes:

Examples of The NOAL's Achievements in The Field of Trade Union

1. The initiative to enable choice of the weekly day of rest, which in fact meant to enable the employment of youth on the weekly day of rest, a matter that is forbidden today by law .

2. Reducing the minimum eligibility age for work in the summer vacation from 14 to 13, which in the reality of labor laws enforcement in Israel, could have been another step in the slippery slope of working youth rights which will, sooner or later lead to the employment of twelve year olds or even younger. Our objection to this amendment to the Youth Labout law is a result of the understanding that by setting the legal norm the state also setts the "grey areas".

The Influential Expansion Potential and Goals for The Future

The Youth Trade Union section of NOAL set many goals for itself, which are meant to expand its influence and to fulfill its goals in the most comprehensive manner. The main goals are:
