Employers of foreign nationals in the construction industry should be aware of a new collective agreement signed in their industry, which is set to have a significant impact on the salaries and benefits of both Israeli and foreign employees in the industry.

The agreement, which will be extended by an extension order and take effect on March 1, 2023, includes several noteworthy provisions, such as updated salary levels and tables for employees, foremen, manufacturers, and renovation workers.

Additionally, the promotion mechanism will no longer be based solely on seniority, but on participation in professional training, providing an opportunity for employees to advance their careers through continued education.

Furthermore, the agreement provides for additional benefits, such as clothing, per diem, and holiday gifts, for employees in the industry.

This collective agreement represents a precedent-setting development in the construction industry and is expected to have a significant impact on the industry as a whole. We encourage all employers in the industry to review the terms of the agreement carefully and ensure compliance with its provisions.
