Starting on Sunday, the dental clinics of Meuhedet Health Services will be closed due to the beginning of a strike, the Histadrut’s health institutions unit announced on Thursday.

The labor federation said that the strike is the culmination of sanctions organized by the union to protect against the “health fund’s intention to harm the employment conditions of the dental clinic staffers.”

In February of this year, management of the third-largest health fund signed a new collective agreement with all staffers, excluding the dentists and other dental clinic workers.

Management claimed that dental clinic staffers were “employed differently, for specific periods of time, that would prevent including all employees in the new agreement.”


The dental workers fear management intends to reduce their salaries, reduce the number of vacation days, and make other changes to their detriment.

The Histadrut said Meuhedet continues to refuse to reach understandings toward negotiating an agreement and that management has hired senior staffers in the dental service “without carrying out hiring publicly and equitably.” No comment was received from Meuhedet’s management.
