    Tom and Charles are correct! As each of you guessed, about 500 American Catholic institutions bargain with unions of their employees. The Archdiocese of New York has the single largest concentration: teachers at more than 150 Archdiocesan Catholic schools and health care workers at the huge Archcare system of clinics, nursing homes, and home health aides comprise the bulk of them.

    When it comes to Catholic hospitals, though, the picture is a bit different. The Archdiocese of Boston and the Archdiocese of Los Angeles each host more union hospitals than New York.

    What’s the picture in your Diocese? Visit our Catholic Employer Project page on the nav bar above and select the Gaudium et Spes Labor Report to find out!
