Catholic Teachers Opt Out of “Minister” Designation

All Current Features

Teachers at four Catholic high schools, under pressure from the San Francisco archbishop to adhere to church teaching in their personal lives, narrowly voted to accept a union agreement with the archdiocese for the next three years. While the contract does not describe the teachers as “ministers,” a term that would have allowed the archdiocese to fire teachers for any reason, it includes phrases about “personal conduct” and “teacher conduct on and off the job.”
