REPORT CARD: Fed Board Exposes Secular Boston College; Schools for Salvation; Dissent Down Under
Labor board (unconstitutionally) calls a spade, a spade
In yet another blow to religious freedom—and yet also a refreshingly honest declaration of the secularization of Boston College—the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) ordered the Jesuit institution in May to allow graduate students to unionize. The university is now appealing the ruling, according to Campus Reform.
The Supreme Court ruled in 1979 that it is a violation of the First Amendment’s Establishment Clause for the NLRB to assert jurisdiction over labor relations in religious education. Nevertheless, the Board has unconstitutionally mandated union elections at Catholic and other religious colleges for many years.
