      Ofer Eini to Defer Retirement from Histadrut Leadership

      Ofer Eini, Chairman of the Histadrut has announced the postponing of his proposed retirement from his leadership position within the organization.

      "Taking into consideration the implications of a Histadrut  without an elected Chairman at this time would mean a huge loss of ability for the organization to continue effectively in their struggles on behalf of Israel's working classes. Responsibility demands that the Histadrut not be left without a chairman or someone to lead them, especially during these difficult times.  And so, I am deferring my retirement for now," Eini said.
