Medical Students in Solidarity Boycott

Medical students are boycotting classes, Monday, in solidarity with interns who are dissatisfied with the way they are treated in the latest collective bargaining agreement signed between the Israel Medical Federation and the government. They will also hold a demonstration on behalf of the residents.

A Monday meeting between representatives of the interns and the treasury was cancelled, according to Israel Defense Forces Radio, which says the residents are refusing to meet with the Finance Ministry.
