As We Await the Janus Decision, Catholics Should Re-Examine Support for Unions: Newsroom: The Independent Institute

Pope Francis has been quite vocal about his love for labor unions, and the Roman Catholic Church has a history of supporting workers’ right to organize, so it is perhaps no surprise that the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops filed a friend-of-the-court brief in favor of the union in the hotly debated Janus v. American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, Council 31, case over mandatory union “agency fees” now before the U.S. Supreme Court. But many Catholics oppose the decision to get involved in the case, and the pope and those in the Church supporting AFSCME in the case should reconsider their position if they truly value the welfare of all workers.

It's the Pope, so be polite.

There was a stage - 60s and 70s - that the only organised opposition to the communists within some British Trade Unions was from the Papists. Between the Devil and the Deep Blue See, eh?
