Hadassah Workers Step Up Sanctions

Jerusalem hospitals to go on emergency footing after claims that state reneged on promises to employees.

Employees of Hadassah Medical Center’s two hospitals in Jerusalem held a protest meeting during work hours yesterday, claiming that the Finance Ministry “recanted on agreements and worsened working conditions at the institution.” Labor sanctions are expected to worsen today, with the Mount Scopus and Ein Karem medical institutions switching to emergency footing.
