Nurses at Vermont hospital back at work after 2-day strike

BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) — Nurses at Vermont's largest hospital are back on the job after a two-day strike. The strike of 1,800 nurses from the University of Vermont Medical Center ended at 7 a.m. Saturday after 48 hours.

NEW YORK (AP) — JPMorgan Chase's second-quarter profits rose by 18 percent from a year ago, as the nation's largest bank by assets and revenue continues to benefit from higher interest rates and a lower tax bill following last year's passage of President Donald Trump's tax law.
