Petition Seeks Arbitration in Doctors' Strike


In a private petition to the High Court, the state appealed for the court to order binding arbitration between the Treasury and doctors. The chances of reaching a deal with doctors was “near zero,” the petition said, and arbitration was the only solution at this point.

“Arbitration will not only end the ongoing damage to the public, it will also solve the problem,” the petition said. The petition added that the state needed the court's help to bring an end to the ongoing strike.
