Alon Hasson, the Chairman of the Ashdod Port Union, suspended himself from the position on Sunday following a Channel 2 report alleging his corrupt dealings.
Histadrut Labor Federation Chairman Ofer Eini accepted the decision,
saying that the Histadrut would continue to stand with the port worker
in expected future negotiations.
He also said it was his
intention to make changes in the Histadrut constitution that would make
it impossible for a union member to possess private businesses that have
business connections to the workplace.
