Hadassah Staff Vote on Bailout Deal

Hadassah Hospital staff are voting, Tuesday, on a proposed deal that could see hundreds of doctors lose their jobs. The doctors were scheduled to meet to vote on the plan at 8:30 a.m. and Hadassah's creditors - suppliers, service providers, pensioners, and more - will vote from 11:00-11:30 am. Some nurses and other staff not represented by the Histadrut labor federation will vote from 6:00-6:30 pm. The Jerusalem District Court will hold a hearing on the results of the vote Wednesday, and is expected to approve implementation of the agreement.
