An attempt by Cardinal Roger Mahony to break the impasse between Catholic Healthcare West and a labor union seeking to represent thousands of its employees failed Thursday morning after a 45-minute meeting between the two parties ended with no agreement. The Service Employees International Union has alleged that managers at three Los Angeles-area CHW hospitals--St. Francis, Robert F. Kennedy and St. Vincent--have violated Catholic Church teachings by aggressively campaigning against the union.

Union officials representing Red Cross bloodmobile drivers and laboratory technicians said a strike was averted Monday because the Red Cross agreed to a meeting later this week. "I need clarification on proposals offered by the Red Cross so I can intelligently present the information to employees," said Meline Hall, a union representative of Teamsters Union Local 63.

A strike by about 80 bloodmobile drivers and laboratory personnel working for the American Red Cross in Southern California appeared "unavoidable" Sunday evening, a Red Cross spokesman said. The spokesman, Rick Davis, said workers represented by Teamsters Union Local 63 could go off the job as early as this morning after the union failed to respond to a contract offer made Thursday.
