Transport Minister, Yisrael Katz, instructed the acting CEO of the Ashdod Port, Yitzhak Blumenthal, to suspend the Chairman of the port’s workers union, Avinoam Shushan, effective immediately. Shushan had earlier instructed the port’s workers to stop doing their jobs.
MK Katz also instructed the port’s acting CEO to call for an immediate return to work of all employees working at the Ashdod Port. “We are talking about scandalous conduct on the part of the Chairman of the workers union. He made an illegal decision of his own accord.”
