Labor Court to Try to Cure Doctors’ Strike Wednesday

Labor Court president Nili Arad is to meet with the Finance Ministry and the Israel Medical Association Wednesday afternoon and may force them to negotiate an agreement or end the strike that has dragged on for several weeks.

Doctors escalated their protest on Tuesday by walking off the job for a short while from at least half a dozen hospitals in metropolitan Tel Aviv and Haifa.
