Nun Bashed By Corizon

From PITTSBURGH POST-GAZETTE:

Google ChromeScreenSnapz001A nun who worked for five years as a registered nurse at the Allegheny County Jail infirmary was fired last week for spearheading unionization efforts. Sister Barbara Finch, a Sister of St. Joseph of Baden, had her security clearances revoked and was dismissed from her job Thursday after she expressed concerns about staffing, safety issues and patient care during meetings at the jail.

"This is a clear case of intimidation and union-busting at its worst," United Steelworkers International president Leo W. Gerard said in a statement. "Sister Barbara has been an outspoken advocate of change for these courageous workers and their patients, and this kind of illegal and unjust action, unfortunately, is par for the course with Corizon."

Union members, jail employees and other union advocates held a protest Downtown Monday, bringing attention to Sister Barbara's complaint and making known their support for the right of workers to unionize.

Blessed Saint Pete Seeger intercede for Sister Barbara that she may be restored to her post with full back pay and that the goons and the ginks and company finks may be thwarted in their evil attempts to tread down the working man (and woman, of course).
