Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu summoned Finance Minister Yuval Steinitz and Deputy Health Minister Ya'acov Litzman Monday afternoon for an emergency meeting regarding the mass resignation of medical residents earlier in the day.

After negotiations in a labor dispute broke down on Sunday, hundreds of medical residents resigned and did not show up for work Monday morning.

The state sought an injunction from the National Labor Court Monday afternoon that would order medical residents to return to work.
