Court Rejects Injunction for Striking Nurses

The Tel Aviv District Labor Court decided late on Tuesday night to reject the State’s request to issue an injunction against striking nurses. The decision means the strike will continue on Wednesday and enter its tenth day.

District Court President Judge Efrat Laxer listened to the arguments from both sides and decided to reject the request. State officials argued that the timing of the strike, so close to an election, prevents the Treasury from making a significant change to the budget with regard to nurses, but Laxer rejected the argument and allowed the nurses to continue the strike.
