The labor union representing Johns Hopkins Hospital's service workers has reached a bargaining impasse with hospital officials and expects to strike Friday. The 1199 SEIU United Healthcare Workers East labor union gave notice last week to authorize a four-day strike, which would be its second in two months after a three-day strike in April. The union's spokesman, Jim McNeill, said Wednesday night that the two groups had spent the day bargaining, but the hospital's final offer fell short of the union's demands.

Friday was the last day of school for Howard County students and staff, but protracted contract talks between the school system and the teachers union are headed for summer session. The one-year agreement between the system and the Howard County Education Association expires June 30, and on Friday the union filed a declaration of impasse with the Maryland Public School Labor Relations Board. The impasse could trigger mediation and, ultimately, binding arbitration in a dispute that has lasted much of the school year.

Members of the union representing most of The Baltimore Sun's newsroom employees voted to approve a two-year contract extension Wednesday evening that freezes wages. The union, the Washington-Baltimore Newspaper Guild, supported the extension. The Sun's parent, the Tribune Co., expects to spin off its newspapers as a separate company this summer, and Guild leaders said the current contract offers employees stability and protection. A Baltimore Sun spokeswoman said the company was happy with the results.

A group of Baltimore students are calling on the school board to pull out of its agreement to purchase energy from a planned plant that would burn waste within a mile of two schools in one of the most polluted neighborhoods of the city. Students from Benjamin Franklin High School have reignited a debate over the Fairfield Renewable Energy Project - what the students and environmental advocates consider an incinerator - that was approved in 2010 and would be the largest of its kind in the nation.

Before Monday's game, the Orioles purchased the contract of right-hander Josh Stinson from Triple-A Norfolk to bolster a bullpen that was depleted after right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez's short outing Sunday against the Oakland Athletics. To make room for Stinson, the club optioned right-hander Brad Brach to the Tides. Brach threw 58 pitches in two innings Sunday and has a 5.40 ERA in 10 games for the Orioles this season. The Orioles transferred left-hander Johan Santana, who tore his left Achilles tendon on Friday, to the 60-day disabled list to clear space for Stinson on the 40-man roster.

ARLINGTON, Texas - From the first time Nelson Cruz stepped into the batter's box at Camden Yards this season, he has heard that unmistakable sound from the home crowd - the long, steady chant of his last name. With the success he has had so far this season, the Orioles outfielder has heard the cheer many times, but he still takes it in each time. It's a reminder of the twisted road he has taken through his major league career, a journey driven by hard work that has now landed in Baltimore, where he's emerged as one of the top offensive players in baseball.

The Washington Wizards are close to reaching an agreement with coach Randy Wittman that will allow him to build upon the franchise's surprising playoff run, according to people with knowledge of the situation. Yahoo Sports is reporting the deal will keep Wittman with the organization for the next three seasons. Nothing is imminent, but discussions have progressed, according to a person who was not at liberty to publicly discuss the negotiations. Wittman was confident that he would return after completing a season in which he led the Wizards to 44 wins, the fifth seed in the Eastern Conference and the organization's first playoff series win since 2005.

The weather is heating up and so are the Orioles hitters, which should make for a very entertaining summer in the wide-open American League East. Enjoy it while you can. The Orioles are looking more and more like the resourceful 2012 team that ended the franchise's 14-season playoff drought, and the addition of big-swinging Nelson Cruz has given the lineup additional swagger while the team works through a series of early season injuries. Whether that means this is the year when the Orioles make a serious run at the World Series remains to be seen.

Baltimore Police Commissioner Anthony W. Batts said Wednesday that he'll eliminate 212 officer positions - all vacant - from the department, marking the first significant reduction in the ranks in decades. Shrinking the size of the police force will be offset by new staffing strategies that will put more officers on the streets overnight when crime spikes, Batts told City Council members during a nearly two-hour budget hearing. Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake backs the approach.

Baltimore's police union Tuesday night approved a contract that increases officer pay by 13 percent and reorganizes the department to add 300 officers available for emergencies, its president said. Of the nearly two-thirds of officers who voted, 86.4 percent approved the new agreement, Fraternal Order of Police Lodge No. 3 President Robert F. Cherry said. The deal will cut vacant positions from the department while raising officer pay. The pay raises, some of which are retroactive, will go into effect across the board by mid-2015, in response to officers' top complaint in a recent in-house survey.
