Nurses poise to strike amid stalled labor talks

After the Finance Ministry failed to launch wage contract negotiations to which it had committed itself a few months ago, the Israel Nurses Union at all public hospitals and most health fund clinics are poised to launch a reduced Shabbat schedule at affected facilities.
The strike, due to begin on Monday morning, will cause serious disruptions in the health system, as doctors cannot function without nurses. The Maccabi and Leumit Health Funds’ nurses are not unionized through the Histadrut labor federation, and will therefore not apply sanctions.
