      Lapid: Alon Hassan's Return a Blow to Organized Labor

      Finance Minister Yair Lapid said, Tuesday, that the return of Alon Hassan to the chair of the workers' committee at the port of Ashdod is a real blow to organized labor in Israel. 

      Lapid said, "Organized labor and maintaining the rights of the workers in Israel should be represented by those who consider the best interests of employees and not their personal good." He added that he will continue to promote competitive bidding for the establishment of additional ports whose opening will reduce the cost of living in Israel for the middle class.
