Since the Tel Aviv District Labor Court convened to goad the Israel Medical Association and Treasury wage officials to reach an agreement to a dispute that began in April, negotiations have been more serious, IMA chairman Dr. Leonid Eidelman said on Sunday.

While the IMA said after the court hearing last week that it would soften the sanctions, the doctors did not decide to halt them completely.
