Catholic Scholars urge Memorial Hospital administration to stop anti-union campaign

December 7th, 2009

Dr. Joe Fahey of Catholic Scholars for Worker Justice writes:

“We are deeply alarmed at reports that SJHS has reverted to an earlier form of behavior and is actively seeking to bust the union movement at Santa Rosa. It is a violation of Catholic Social Teaching on workers’ rights for an employer to demonstrate anti-union sentiments. The decision for or against a union is rooted in the natural right of free association and the employer may under no circumstances violate or denigrate this right through actions or conversations with workers that have a clear anti-union prejudice.”
