Pharmacists in Israeli Public Health Institutions Go on Strike

Download PDF for this date

A country-wide strike of chemists and pharmacists started today with only emergency staffs remaining on duty in public health institutions.

The walk-out followed the refusal by government and Histadrut officials to yield to demands of the two professional groups for a “proper academic” increase in wages. Institutions affected include the Joint Distribution Committee’s Malben home, all Histadrut sick fund clinics and hospitals.
