Status Quo Agreements

The status quo regime in Israel officially recognizes the authority of the Orthodox rabbinate only in all matters of personal status. However, each of the major Jewish denominations has a different view of “Who is a Jew?” This definition has a potential impact on nationality and other purposes in a number of areas, including the Law on Return. The Orthodox rabbinate has a very strict interpretation of Jewish status and standards of conversion and has only requested recognition of Orthodox conversion to Judaism. The Orthodox monopoly in Israel has been under attack for many years as a “political stumbling block” in relations between the more conservative religious community and the state and secular Jews in Israel. When an employment contract between the University of California and a union expires, some provisions of the expired contract remain in effect and others expire. The status quo requires the university to maintain the same wages, hours and conditions of employment for the represented workers that existed at the time the contract expired until an agreement was reached with the union. The status quo period can be a difficult time for campus managers and supervisors. Much of management`s discretion with respect to different terms of employment, wages and hours requiring contractual redundancy will cease during the status quo. However, not all wages, hours and conditions of employment are negotiated. Some are outside the negotiating framework and remain at the helm of management during the status quo period. These include decisions about the reorganization of services or the organization of activities or programs, recruitment decisions and decisions that are at the heart of the university`s mission.

While some management decisions are outside the negotiating framework, the impact of these decisions can be negotiated. Many status quo conditions are reflected in the language of expiring employment contracts, but others do not. When a contract expires, the university cannot change wages, hours and terms of employment without informing the union and negotiating the change. These include changes to working time, sick leave procedures, performance assessment procedures, work schedules such as changes in working time, changes in departure and downtime, changes to lunchtime and flexible work requests. The general rule is that current business conditions for employees are maintained in collective agreement units. However, the application of the principles of status quo to the articles of the treaty is of particular importance is described below: history has characterized this regulation as a struggle for the status quo. The struggle for israel`s spiritual character did not begin in 1947. The difficulties associated with the relationship between religion and compulsory government in Eretz-Jisrael began in the 1920s, when waves of immigration brought Zionists (with a privileged status in the search for “certificates of entry”) to Palestine in greater numbers than any other group.
