Document regarding the Status of Jewish Police Men [Notrim] Signed by Moshe Sharett - Tevet [1944]

Official document from the "Sochnut HaYehudit L'Eretz Yisrael" - Stencil print signed by Moshe Sharett.

Interesting letter sent to the "Vaad HaPoel" of the Histadrut complaining about the fact that members of the Histadrut that joined the police force lost their rights in the Histadrut, because the police constitution prohibited policemen from joining other organizations. Sharett asks that this issue be addressed so that policemen could retain their membership in the Histadrut. This request was triggered by a former policeman who told Sharett that after he left the police service and submitted a request to reinstate his membership in the Histadrut, he was asked to pay the histadrut dues. "I therefore ask that this problem be addressed and that protocols be arranged to prevent this discrimination." Moshe Sharett's signature appears in the margins.

Moshe Sharett [1894-1965] was the Second President of the State of Israel. At the time, Sharett served in the "Security Council" that supervised security. He presented the yishuv's position at various inquires regarding the situation in Palestine.
