Back in the United States, a union representing some 5,000 workers at Chicago-area nursing homes have authorized a strike next week, as long-running contract talks stalled over wages and staffing levels. The Service Employees International Union says the employers began negotiations asking nursing home workers to accept less than minimum wage. The strike would begin as a rolling series of work stoppages beginning May 4.
