Medical residents warned Friday, ahead of Yom Kippur, that if no agreement is reached with teh Finance Ministry by Monday, that they will go ahead with a mass resignation.

Doctor Aviv Shaul, a medical resident at Rabin Medical Center-Beilinson Campus in Petah Tikva, told Israel Radio Friday that if no agreement is reached, "it will no longer be under our control," adding that anger is growing among residents.

Deputy head of the Budgetary Division at the Finance Ministry Moshe Bar Simon-Tov told Israel Radio that both sides feel that there is a chance of reaching an agreement. He added that it is possible to solve the dispute without opening the collective agreement signed earlier this year with doctors.
