Unions Eye Israeli Doctors' Rumored 60 Percent Increase

TEL AVIV (JTA) — The
Histadrut is trying to hold
down demands by a number
of professional trades
unions for a re-opening of
their contracts, which limit
them to a 22 percent salary
increase, in the wake of the
end of the doctors strike.
Spokesmen for the
engineers, academics,
nurses and technicians
have said they would have
been prepared to remain si-
lent if the doctors had been
granted a small increase

above the 22 percent limit.
But with the reports that
the doctors have won a 60
percent increase, they say
they now have no alterna-
tive but to demand new in-
creases.
They say that the large,
extra increase represents a
breach by the government
of the overall work contract.
Histadrut spokesmen
have said in the past that
it would not prevent
unions from demanding
increases if the em-
ployers yielded to one
group.
But Yisrael Kessar, head
of the Histadrut Trades
Union Department, said
that the economic situation
in general and the good of
the country must also be
considered.
The Treasury said that
new taxes were unavoidable
to pay for the expected in-
crease in the salaries of gov-
ernment - employed physi-
cians who ended their four

month-old strike after the
government agreed to bind-
ing arbitration.
Although the panel of ar-
bitrators is yet to be
selected, Treasury sources
and others were speaking of
a 60 percent raise for the
doctors. The Treasury
sources estimated that this
will cost the country some
12 billion Shekels (about
$260 million), which is
three times the amount
allowed for in the national
budget. The problem now is
how to raise the additional
money.
One suggestion floated
was a tax on every visit to
a doctor or stay at a hos-
pital on top of the
monthly health insur-
ance premiums paid- to
the various sick funds.
Naftali Ben Moshe, a
member of the executive
of Histadrut which oper-
ates Kupat Holim, the
largest sick fund, ob-
jected strongly.

Aridor reportedly is deter-
mined to find outside
sources to pay for the wage
hikes. Aridor had
threatened to resign if the
government agreed to bind-
ing arbitration which he
considered a surrender to
the strikers. He has been si-
lent on that since the
Cabinet's decision last Sun-
day and is said to be waiting
to see what the arbitration
panel will decide.
Meanwhile, hospitals
all over Israel are trying
to return to normal as
quickly as possible as a
backlog of patients
streamed through their
doors. The hospitals have
been functioning with
less than a third of their
medical staffs since the

Moshe Mandelbaum,
governor of the Bank of Is-
rael, also opposes a levy on
medical care. He said it
would add to the tax burden
carried by citizens which is
already too high. Labor
Party MK Gad Yacobi,
chairman of the Knesset
Finance Committee, said
that the budget shortfall
could be more than covered
if the government slowed
down its settlement drive on
the West Bank, instituted
daylight saving time in the
summer months and
allowed El Al, the national
airline, to resume Sabbath
flights. The coalition and
especially its religious con-
stituents objected vehe-
mently to such measures.
