Scottish union threatens picket at ceremonies during Pope's visit
Catholic World News - August 06, 2010
Striking union members in Scotland could picket a public appearance by Pope Benedict XVI in September, union leaders have warned.
Workers at Glasgow Life might take actions that could disrupt plans for the Pope’s appearance, the labor leaders said. Management officials seemed skeptical, saying that the threat was intended only to generate publicity. The union leaders damaged their own credibility with a plea to the Swiss Guard “to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with striking Glasgow Life workers.”
