Tabib worked in agriculture, industry, building, and also served as a guard. During World War II he served in the British Army; later, during the War of Independence, he did editorial work for the Israel Defence Forces. Tabib was active in the central institutions of the Worker's Movement, and served in the Arab section of the Workers' Confederation.
