Interns and Treasury Resume Talks Tuesday

Representatives of medical residents and the Finance Ministry are scheduled to resume negotiations, Tuesday, on the interns' dissatisfaction with the recently-signed collective bargaining agreement between the government and the Israel Medical Federation, according to Israel Defense Forces Radio.

Under instructions from the Supreme Court, the two sides will try to come up with a solution in the next ten days. If they don't, the case will return to the court, which will rule on the legality of mass resignations by the interns. The court has already said that doctors who sincerely want to resign - and not just quit in protest - will be allowed to do so.
