Hadassah Staff to Stage Sunday Walk-Out

After failed talks with the Israel Medical Association, the administration decided over the weekend to pay workers - who are already reeling over budget cuts and minimal salaries - only half their salaries this month as a result, and only plans to pay them about 90% of their salaries in total.

In response, medical staff still working at the medical center on Shabbat and holiday hours have planned a mass walk-out for several hours Sunday.  The IMA called for the crisis to be immediately resolved and the strikes stopped Saturday night, calling for workers with full wages due them to be paid immediately ahead of the planned walkout.
