Gov't appeals ruling against restraining orders for nurses

December 13, 2012 17:50

Unsatisfied with the Tel Aviv Regional Labor Court’s ruling earlier this week that it would not, at this time, issue restraining orders against striking nurses, the Tel Aviv District Attorney filed an appeal on Thursday to the National Labor Court. The case was due to be heard starting at 7 p.m. that evening.

The regional court judge had stated that the Treasury was not genuinely negotiating and that the nurses had a right to apply sanctions. But the Treasury, which has said no new wage contract with the nurses can be negotiated or higher budgets promised before the Knesset elections are held, objected to the ruling.

Thursday was the 12th day of 28,000 nurses against public hospitals around the country and Health Ministry facilities, but for the last two days, the sanctions were eased to allow nurses to work in Clalit Health Services’ community clinics.
