Interns to Appeal to Supreme Court Monday

Representatives of medical residents are scheduled to file an appeal to the Supreme Court, Monday, of last week's decision by the National Labor Court invalidating the letters of resignation they submitted in protest of their status in the latest collective bargaining agreement between the Israel Medical Federation and the government.

The interns say the court's call for them to return to work amounts to "modern slavery." Talks are continuing between the interns and the government.
