Nurses ‘Being Treated like Slaves’
Negotiations between the Nurses’ Union and the government broke down Tuesday, leaving the nurses to continue their strike for a third week.
“The Treasury is treating nurses like slaves, not like workers responsible for human life,” accused Nurses’ Union head Ilana Cohen.
“The serious shortage of nurses mandates an agreement that will provide an immediate solution to the crisis,” she declared. “As long as the Treasury does not change its approach, the strike will continue.”
