Resolution about previous chairman

Sólveig Anna Jónsdóttir gave promises about changes in Efling in the election campaign in spring of 2018. She has kept those promises. In Sólveig Anna’s time as chairman, the service of the union has been greatly improved.

Most importantly, the union has been transformed into a campaign movement. By mobilizing members to participate in strike action, negotiation committees, mass meetings and public advocacy, the union has been completely revolutionized.

Sólveig Anna showed that Efling could not only lead a renewed struggle of low wage workers but could also achieve real success in this struggle. This is firmly proven by wage development statistics over the last years.

The Delegate Council wishes to thank Sólveig Anna for her relentless fight for the interests of Efling members, and regrets her departure.
