Labor unions, Catholic hospitals to end conflict
Associated Press, June 23, 2009
Labor unions and Catholic leaders have reached an agreement designed to end years of bitter hostilities that often surrounded union efforts to organize workers at Catholic hospitals. The accord seeks to apply Catholic teachings that recognize the right of workers to "freely and fairly" decide whether to join a union. One of the key principles directs both employers and unions to refrain from harassing, threatening, intimidating, or coercing workers.
