Specialists to Hold 'Advisory Meetings' At Hospitals


Specialists in hospitals across Israel were ordered to return to work Wednesday morning by the National Labor Court, after threatening to skip their rounds and surgeries on Thursday. Representatives of the doctors said that they would report for work but would, during work hours, conduct a discussion about their demands.

Histadrut officials will meet with representatives of the specialists Thursday afternoon and update them on the contract being developed by the Histadrut and the Treasury. Both sides are said to be very close to an agreement.
