Sanctions by the Israel Nurses Association will continue on Sunday - their 14th day -  but as a "show of goodwill, Clalit Health Services’ nurses will work normally in all the health fund’s community clinics.

National Labor Court president Judge Nili Arad asked the two sides - the Treasury and the union - to report back to her on Sunday at 7 p.m., and if significant progress is not made by then, she would consider issuing restraining orders on Monday.

Meanwhile, nursing students at all the nursing school campuses in the country will at 10 a.m. on Sunday hold a two-hour strike, and a demonstration of support will be held at the University of Haifa.

Over 28,000 nurses around the country are fighting for an improved wage contract when their collective agreement expires at the end of December. There are currently about 4,000 female and male nursing students around the country.
