Caregivers Protest Foley & Lardner's Union Busting & Intimidation
Date:6/12/2008

Call Upon St. Joseph Health System to Use Valuable Patient Care Resources in Manner True to Their Mission

LOS ANGELES, June 12 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Hundreds of Healthcare workers from Los Angeles and Orange Counties demonstrated in front of the law offices of Foley & Lardner, LLP on Thursday, June 12th to protest the firm's anti-union tactics aimed against healthcare workers organizing their union at St. Joseph Health System (SJHS), a $3.4 billion dollar corporation founded by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Orange (SSJO). The SJHS employees are particularly angered that the coercion and harassment is being paid for by resources that could be better used to address workplace needs and provide care to those in need instead of to deny workers' their rights.

The 10,000 caregivers, part of a statewide unionization effort involving employees at five SJHS hospitals, have been subjected to a sophisticated and illegal anti-union campaign throughout their four year long efforts. Beyond that, SJHS has a ten year history of responding to employee unionization efforts by contracting out their dirty work to union-busting consultants. The current campaign which is now directed by Rick Albert, a partner at Foley & Lardner who specializes in "union-avoidance", has featured managers, trained by Foley & Lardner attorneys, spying on, harassing and intimidating workers who are known to be involved in the union effort, and has resulted in multiple violations of relevant labor law. The fact that SJHS has hired this outside firm, and at the same time repeatedly maintains that it is not an anti-union employer further highlights the contradictions between rhetoric and behavior that have tarnished the reputation of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Orange. The SSJO: founded the hospitals; hold the controlling majority on the current Board of Trustees; and their General Superior, Sr. Katherine Gray, csj, chairs the health system's board.
