Klalit Nurses Go on Strike, Ordered to Return to Work

IsraelNationalNews.com, October 24, 2006
About 3,000 nurses working at Klalit Medical Clinics went on strike Tuesday morning in protest of what they say is a severe personnel shortage. The nurses claim an addition of 200 nurses is necessary. The National Labor Court, however, hours later issued a court-order preventing the strike, ordering the nurses to resume work immediately. The court also demanded a resumption of negotiations between the nurses and the Klalit HMO.
