Bikur Holim Workers Close Maternity Ward

Workers at Bikur Holim Hospital in Jerusalem closed the maternity ward to new patients, Monday morning, in their continuing protest over receiving only 30 percent of their September salaries and uncertainty over if and when they will receive their October pay. On Sunday, dozens of workers walked out on the wards, held a protest march and attended informational meetings at the Histadrut Labor Federation building.

A hearing is scheduled for Monday afternoon in the Jerusalem District Court on a request by management to issue an injunction against the sanctions.
