The State Attorney's office on Tuesday informed the Supreme Court that a group of medical residents' intention to resign on September 4 in protest of the agreement signed between the Israel Medical Association and the Finance Ministry to end the doctors' labor dispute is illegal, Israel Radio reported.

According to the report, the State Attorney's office deemed the planned resignations an illegal organizational move which can not be carried out without the consent of the IMA, which represents the medical residents.

In addition, the state emphasized that the move would be in direct opposition to a ruling made by the National Labor Court last month.
