Call to Suspend Chair of Ashdod Port Union


The Movement for Quality Government in Israel on Thursday called on the management of the Ashdod Port and on the Histadrut Labor Federation to suspend Alon Hassan as the chairman of the Ashdod Port workers’ union and to assist in the investigation against him. The movement noted that a suspension of Hassan is warranted according to the rules of proper administration and in order to prevent disruption of the investigation.

Hassan suspended himself last month after a Channel 2 News report exposed that he had been operating his personal companies within the Ashdod Port. This past week, however, he indicated that he wishes to end his suspension and return to work.
