Union busting refers to the action of any person who seeks to prevent employees from form-ing a labor union, or who attempts to undermine or destroy an existing union. This person is in grave material violation of Catholic Social Doctrine on labor unions.  This violation of Catholic Doctrine constitutes material grounds for mortal sin, because it stands in grave violation of: 1) both the letter and spirit of Catholic Social Doctrine; 2) the roots of this Doctrine in the First Com-mandment (idolatry), the Fifth Commandment (scandal), and the Seventh Commandment (theft).
