USCC supports bills to support strikers Wa.~ington - The United States Catholic Confer' ence (USCC) has said it supports HR5 and $55, biIl~ to protect the seniority of striking workers. In a state ment, the USCC said: "The right of workers to organize, to I~pi~ collectively for favorable working conditions and to strike has been law in the U. S. for more tlaan 50 ),ears. However, since 1938 a rarely-used court op~ ion has held that firms could replaoe strikers to kee~ dieir businesses going. In ever-increasing numbeO employers in the 1980s began using this law to e~" tract conu'act concessions from unions, or, so~ would say, to get rid of a trade union by forcing i strike through negotiating tactics and then immedr ately hiring replacement workers. Some employ# have gone so far as to advertise for new worke~ before the strike begins. Regardless of the intent d tactics, the number of companies permanently placing suikers has increased, effectively denying wo~" ers the right to swike. When are hired, it is virtually impossible for union to "win" in negotiations - or even to end the without big losses because they have lost their job5 I the replacement workers. This practice radicall, the balance of power to the employer and trade unions impotent. In his letter On Human Work, PopeJohn speaking of unions, says: "The experience teaches that organizations of this type are an pensable element of sodal life, espedally in mode~ industrial sodety.' In Catholic social teaching o# cannot deny the right to organize without auacki~ human dignity itself. 'The strike is the traditional method of affordita~ Labor an equal footing in collective bargaining wi~ management. The strike is recognized by Ca~olg social teaching as an extreme but legitimate recoU~ given proper conditions and within limits ofjusfi~ essential community services must be ensured, #d strikes should not paralyze the whole sodoecono#c order. [Iohn Cardinal O'Connor, in testimony before ~ U.S. Senate subcommittee in New York City this p~ December, said: 'It is useless to speak glowingly i0 either legal or moral terms about the rights to bar" gain and to strike as a last resort, or even the ri~t to unionize, if either party, management or labor, bargains in bad faith, or in the case of manageme#' with foreknowledge of being able to permanently replace workers who strike, on the primary basis d the strike itself. In my judgement, this makes a d#" fade of the collective Iitrgalning, and a mockery d the right to strike.' "HR 5 and S 55 are bills to 'Amend the Nado#I Labor Relations Act to prevent discrimination ba~ r September - That leaders in world upon parddpation in labor disputes'. The bills wo~l commerce may restore justice to the allow strikers their seniority or position in the fir# weak and poor.
