Its always funny when union bosses think they are smarter than the Archbishop on internal Church matters. Gee, I wonder when they'll start making surgical recommendations and stock picks?

"He noted in the statement that employees losing their jobs would receive a "severance package that is consistent with both their current employment agreement and the Catholic Church's commitment to justice and fairness." ... Yeah...right....just like they want to "justice and fairness" to the gay and lesbian population in Minnesota.

Its probably not about money at all... As a separate entitity, the Spirit sometime... Sometimes actually reported objective news related to the Church. The new arrangement will give the Archbishop much more control.

Neinstedt has been hanging around with Senjem and Zellers to long. Larry Moe and Curly. Neinstedt needs to reign, he obviously has not read the bible.

This is nothing more than a smoke screen to eliminate the health care benefits negoiated between the union that represents the workers and the Archdiocese. I would bet the health care insurance provided for birth control. As for the new company union, "Justice in Employment" I would say to the employees covered by this plan "good luck"! Futhermore, I will no longer be supporting the Archdiocese financially or otherwise!
