Tiberias: Poriyah Hospital Support Staff Starts Strike

About 300 members of the administrative, household and maintenance staff at Poriyah Hospital in Tiberias started an open-ended strike, Monday morning. The Histadrut Labor Federation declared a labor dispute at the hospital three weeks ago, claiming management ignored labor's claims of a massive workload and lack of staff to accompany massive expansion at the facility.

Among those taking part are receptionists in the outpatient clinics, those who prepare food for the patients and those who wheel them around.
