Nurses' union plans to strike
A union is threatening a one-day strike involving 16,000 registered nurses at 39 hospitals in California and Nevada, saying hospitals aren't providing enough protections against swine flu for its members. The union said one of its members died in August after contracting swine flu and that dozens of others have been sickened by the disease. It wants to use the contract negotiations to establish safety procedures around the United States.
