Chicago Hyatt workers poised to go on strike

Workers for Hyatt hotels in Chicago are threatening a strike Friday, but they aren't saying which hotel is being targeted.

This would be the largest job action since the company's contract with 6,000 union workers expired more than a year ago.

The strike threat is apparently part of a coordinated union effort that started Thursday with strikes at Hyatt properties in Honolulu and Los Angeles.
