The struggle of interns is gaining momentum: threatening mass resignation

The doctors and interns continue their struggle to shorten the shifts in light of the intention of the Minister of Economy, Orna Barbibai, to approve an outline for shortening the shifts, at the end of which the interns will work shifts of 22 hours instead of 26 hours.

In recent days, in conversations with the minister’s staff Barbibai said the outline promoted by the minister is to shorten shifts from 26 hours to 22 or 21 hours. “Anyone who calls this joke short on shifts is simply not connected to reality and certainly not connected to the field,” clarified Dr. Ray Bitton, chairman of the Prescription Physicians Association. “We will not agree to any outline that is more than 18 hours of shift work. Even so, it is long working hours and an abusive form of work. But more than 18 hours is unacceptable and the interns are ready for extreme measures if required.

“The Ministry of Health already understands that this is the minimum that can be approved and it is not clear to us why the Ministry of Economy and Labor, which trusts in the protection of workers’ rights, offers a more abusive model.” Was seen here “.
