(Reuters) - About 18,000 nurses at Kaiser Permanente hospitals and clinics in central and northern California will receive raises of 14 percent over three years under a tentative agreement averting a potential strike, the union said on Sunday. The California Nurses Association, which is part of National Nurses United, said in a statement that the agreement would result in the hiring of more registered nurses as well as improved retirement benefits. The union, which canceled a strike planned for Wednesday and Thursday of this week, said the agreement must next be ratified by the 18,000 registered nurses and nurse practitioners covered at 86 Kaiser Permanente hospitals and clinics in California. The agreement is likely to elevate standards for registered nurses across the nation, the union said.

U.S. President Obama faces joint news conference at the White House in WashingtonBy Howard Schneider DALTON, Georgia (Reuters) - Barack Obama enters the final two years of his presidency with a blemish on his legacy that looks impossible to erase: the decline of the middle class he has promised to rescue. The revival of middle-class jobs has been one of Obama's mantras since he took office in 2009 fighting the worst economic crisis in generations. Obama's administration can take credit for stabilizing the U.S. economy, which is growing again and last year added jobs at the fastest clip since 1999. Federal Reserve survey data show families in the middle fifth of the income scale now earn less and their net worth is lower than when Obama took office.
