Flying in the face of a National Labor Court decision freezing their resignation, 46 medical residents failed to show up for their shifts at Ichilov hospital Thursday morning, Army Radio reported.  A number of residents at Sheba Hospital also stayed home.

Most of the over 700 residents who resigned as part of a labor dispute heeded Wednesday's court decision, and showed up to work as scheduled.  Negotiations between residents and the state were slated to continue, while the court was due to reconvene Thursday at noon.

The absence of the residents represents the first time significant numbers failed to show up for work since they resigned en mass in early September.
