2 December 2020

On Tuesday, December 1, New Israel Fund’s (NIF) management and Board warmly welcomed NIF Union/OPEIU Local 29, the NIF staff union representing all non-supervisory, non-managerial, non-confidential US-based staff. As an organization committed to the rights of all people, at home and at work, NIF looks forward to working with the union and the entire staff team to continue to make NIF a fantastic place to work.

“NIF’s deep respect for our shared human dignity drives all our work, and that respect has always included our staff. We congratulate those staff members who chose to organize as a union and are proud to voluntarily recognize NIF Union/OPEIU Local 29,” said Daniel Sokatch, CEO of the New Israel Fund. “Our staff members dedicate their days to our shared mission of supporting democracy and equality for all people in Israel. I am grateful to every member of the NIF team who honors us with their labor to make our mission possible.”

NIF Union/OPEIU Local 29 is part of the Office and Professional Employees International Union.

The New Israel Fund is the leading organization advancing and defending democracy in Israel. Widely credited with building Israeli progressive civil society, NIF has provided over $300 million to progressive civil society organizations in Israel since its inception in 1979.
