Possible Court Injunction May End Nurses Strike

The Finance and Health ministries are mulling over the idea of getting a court injunction to put an end to the nurses' strike and force them to return to work. Many top officials expressed the view that the matter must be settled as soon as possible because it puts the care of patients at risk. Most recently, MK Aryeh Eldad turned to the Prime Minister, desperately asking the PM to intervene in the nurses strike before patients pay the price with their lives. He said the issue cannot be pushed off until after the elections.
