This piece recounts the content of an informal discussion on labor relations in Jewish social agencies. Individuals who spoke in the discussion asserted that collective bargaining was now an established fact in Jewish social work and that it was time to proceed to the development of labor relations that would ensure that the interests of workers, the management, and the public were protected. The piece also describes how higher salaries, improved security for workers, and better services go hand in hand, and that it is impossible to establish and maintain adequate welfare services unless a major consideration is given to the matter of personnel. The piece concludes with one of the individuals contending that unions would be willing to cooperate with agencies provided that they willing to accept rule of law rather than usage of force to resolve issues related to salary and working conditions.
