Former teachers sue Pennsylvania diocese for $1M awarded by arbitrator

CWN - February 01, 2010

Former Catholic school teachers in the Diocese of Scranton have filed suit to force the diocese to pay over $1 million that an arbitrator awarded to them over a year ago. The arbitrator’s ruling following then-Bishop Joseph Martino’s 2007 decision to restructure his diocese’s schools.

“Evidently, they didn't realize in ending the contracts the way they did, they triggered clauses in the contracts that called for the teachers to receive unused sick days and severance,” said former teacher Michael Milz.
