The author's criticism of the Histadrut boils down to the fact that it is a union, not a political party. It has the same faults as all the other unions in the world but Israeli workers would be much, much worse off without it. The Histadrut's recent success in obtaining a reasonable pay increase for all public sector workers without a strike, just by threatening to strike, is an achievement that almost every other union in the world can only envy. I suspect that the reason this author sneers at the Histadrut is because his "left" cares only about the welfare of Arab terrorists and not about Jewish workers.
