Opposition leader Shelly Yacimovich (Labor) on Tuesday responded to the resignation of Histadrut labor federation chairman Ofer Eini, saying that he had made a "decisive contribution" to the right of workers to support themselves honorably.

Yacimovich stated that she had spoken with Eini and expressed to him her sorrow that he was leaving the Histadrut.

"Ofer Eini's years as Histadrut chairman were important years which followed a lengthy period in which the worker was weakened," the Labor party leader stated.

"Against major powers, the status of many workers was strengthened. Tens of thousands of workers unionized, many of them young, through a daring struggle that won the full backing of the Histadrut under Eini," she added.
