The negotiations between the National Nurses' Union and the Finance Minstry have broken down. The head of the union, Ilana Cohen said: "The Finance Ministry keeps treating the nurses as slaves not workers." She further added, "If their attitude will not change the struggle will continue."
In response the Finance Ministry said: "We call on the National Nurses' Union to return to the negotiating table, we are inches away from an agreement." (Boaz Fyler)
