The ASÍ Congress is the highest authority in the matters of ASÍ and is held every two years. Member unions are allowed to send a different number of delegates depending on the membership size of each union. Efling will have 54 delegates this time. A total number of 300 delegates representing wage earners will attend the congress and decide on the leadership and policies of ASÍ.
