"At the beginning of the Corona crisis, I promised that I would do everything to save El Al, which is an important strategic asset for the State of Israel. Since the outbreak of the crisis, the Histadrut has been working vigorously to maintain Israel's aviation security, rehabilitate the industry and save society. The Histadrut has so far transferred more than NIS 10 million to enable the streamlining agreements at El Al.



The voluntary retirement agreements and assistance grants to El Al employees in Chalat, which we are signing today, are an essential layer on the way to achieving this goal. I thank the company's management for joining and cooperating at this critical time, Avi Edri, and his dedicated team who worked tirelessly to bridge the gaps between the parties and formulate agreements that will allow El-Al to overcome the crisis and maintain the livelihoods of thousands of its additional employees.



We linked our fate to the fate of management. The state flag is flown on El Al planes, and that is an Israeli pride. People want to return to fly, and I am convinced he asked the sure path to success. "

It is important for me to note that this is "This is not an easy step for all parties - but it reflects the desire of all of us to raise the company to a level of recovery and economic security, for the benefit of all stakeholders."



Chairman of the Histadrut's Transportation Workers' Union Avi Edri

: "These are agreements that fill our lungs and remind us all of the power and sensitivity of organized work, even in difficult times. Even at the beginning of the crisis, our hearts were with the workers who are staying in the Knesset, and from the moment we realized that the state was stopping the Knesset payments, we decided that we would take care of them at all costs.



We succeeded in convincing the employer to step into the shoes of the National Insurance Institute and continue to pay employees the sickness benefits, and no less importantly - we succeeded in concluding a generous voluntary retirement plan for employees who voluntarily decide to open a new page. ".



Chairman of the El Al Workers' Council, Sharon Ben Yitzhak

The Corona brought us to a not-so-simple reality in which we parted ways with 2,000 employees and reached respectable retirement agreements for those who asked not to continue. Now we are with the face forward to storm the market and bring back the company and subsidiary Sun Dor to fly. El Al will remain a large company with at least 36 aircraft and 4,000 employees, who will continue to carry the Israeli flag with pride. "
