Union activist in Maine library quits over harrassment

Karen Callaghan, a former library worker in South Portland, Maine has quit her position after successfully winning a lawsuit against her former employer related to harassment due to union activity.  From the article:

“I’ve had a lot of trouble since we unionized,” said Karen Callaghan on Tuesday, noting that she was the last remaining member of the library union, which folded last year for lack of support after its founders quit, retired or got laid off.

Callaghan’s attorney, David Lourie of Cape Elizabeth, says the trouble included recent changes to her schedule, including a transfer to the branch library that cost her hours when one of her new days fell on Easter, which was ruled an unpaid holiday.
