Teachers at four Catholic high schools, under pressure from the San Francisco archbishop to adhere to church teaching in their personal lives, narrowly accepted a union agreement with the archdiocese.
An assemblymember called the hearing because he said he is worried about the impact of Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone's proposed changes on the schools.
The union said the new language "makes ... a stronger claim that all faculty and staff are 'ministers', regardless of the fact that the term 'minister' has been removed."
"The religious fabric of the San Francisco archdiocese has been torn, and it did not need to happen. Intentionally or not, it has been wrenched."
