    Teachers union plugs away, despite lack of recognition- By Bill McClellan, ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH
    I remember brighter days. The association was founded in 1995. For a while, momentum seemed to be going its way. More than half of the 2,400 elementary school teachers in the system signed authorization forms. Supporters pointed out that teachers in the Catholic high schools had a union. What's more, the Catholic church has traditionally supported the right of workers to organize. The association affiliated with the Carpenters Union. Nice symbolism there! More important, that affiliation put the local labor movement strongly on the side of the association. How could the church not recognize the new union?

    Quite easily, it turns out.
