PM to Interns: Demonstrate Responsibility


The Prime Minister's Office responded, Monday morning, to a call by medical residents to get involved in their talks with the government by issuing the following statement: "As the prime minister promised the interns during his meeting with them, he is also working now to find a solution. The prime minister asked for two weeks and expects the interns to demonstrate responsibility."

The interns are dissatisfied with the way they are treated in the latest collective bargaining agreement signed between the government and the Israel Medical Federation. Hundreds of them have submitted their resignations.
