Contract talks between the company and the CWA are "stalled," said Candice Johnson, a union spokeswoman. She said the two sides are "still very far apart on key issues."

Like many at Johns Hopkins Hospital, I have been closely following the contract talks between management and the hospital's 2,000 union caregivers ("Hopkins, union to begin negotiating again," April 23). Everyone who cares for patients at Johns Hopkins knows how hard our union colleagues work and how essential they are. That's why it's been troubling to learn that many of them are struggling with low pay - pay that's actually below the federal poverty level in many cases.

Government employee union leaders say they know exactly what to expect in the budget that County Executive Janet S. Owens will release today: bad news for county workers. None of the five unions of county employees up for contract renewal this year has reached any agreement with the county government. Union leaders report that negotiations have been especially bitter this year. New contracts would begin with the next fiscal year, July 1. The fire union president described negotiations as "downright ugly," and the leader of the union representing county sheriff's deputies called them "the worst in memory."
