The Electronic Intifada

 

 

The United Electrical, Radio and Machine Workers of America – known as UE – has voted to back the Palestinian call for boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) on Israel.

 

This makes it only the second national union in the United States, and the largest so far, to take such a step.

 

 Palestinian trade unionists and activists are warmly welcoming the move.

 

UE represents more than 30,000 workers across the country in a range of private and public sector occupations.
