Burns The recent merger of two community health centers serving West Baltimore has led to the abolition of a union contract and to charges by the union that employees were Illegally harassed and threatened by management The union. Hospital Employees Local 1273, Is asking the National Labor Relations Board for a court order barring the employer from violating employee rights while the union conducts a campaign to reorganize the work force there.

The July 1 merger of the bankrupt Constant Care Health Maintenance Organization with West Baltimore Community Health Care Center, which had the union contract, created Total Health Care Inc. Because Total Health Care claimed It had a majority of non-union workers 86 people from Constant Care and 28 from West Baltimore the employer told the union It was ending the labor contract and would no longer recognize Local 1273 as representative of employees. "We had no option but to begin organizing again," said Gloria Harris, the local president. "That's when our troubles began." The union, an affiliate of Laborers District Council of Baltimore, has filed more than two dozen unfair labor charges against Total Health Care, claiming that employees were unlawfully threatened with firing, promised benefits to reject the union, interrogated about union sympathies, and ordered to turn in union-authorization cards they had signed. John S.

Singleton, a lawyer for the union, said Local 1273 was asking the NLRB for an immediate court injunction because the lengthy board complaint process would not "provide any real relief to employees." "The employer relies on Its impression that the NLRB will be ineffective against this type of conduct, any remedy coming too late," he wrote to the agency. Total Health Care "directly challenges the effectiveness of the remedies available under the National Labor Relations Act," he continued. Monte Fried, a lawyer for Total Health Care, said he had not seen a copy of the union charges made to the NLRB and would not comment on them. The union has not challenged Total Health Care's termination of the contract, which was to expire in 1991. Labor board decisions appear to uphold the position of employers In similar circ*mstances, Mr.

Single ton noted. But he claimed that, for six months prior to the official merger. West Baltimore had systematically reduced its union member work force and filled vacancies with nonunion employees on Constant Care's payroll. Constant Care had about 300 employees at the time of merger. West Baltimore about 100.

Management of the new organization Is primarily from the West Baltimore center; West Baltimore employees represented by the union were in blue-collar and clerical Jobs. Kenneth G. Raposa, business manager for the Laborers' District Council, said the Total Health Care reaction to the union's effort to organize employees this month was "a little surprising" given a history of good relations under past labor contracts. But he noted that Constant Care had pulled out of another labor union contract years ago, when It was spun off from the old Provident Hospital, whose employees were represented by District 1 199E. Hospital and Health Care Employees.

District 1199E did not organize that new health organization. The NLRB regional office in Baltimore said it will Investigate the union's charges. Court limits witness' refusal to testify finding Ms. Choi guilty of contempt. The Judges said their ruling means that witnesses in the future cannot refuse to testify in such cases because they will have no reason to fear prosecution.

But the opinion said Ms. Choi was Justified at the time In fearing she would be prosecuted because lawyers for the state had stated that prosecution was possible under Maryland law. Paul Kemp, Ms. Choi's lawyer, said the ruling brings to a close legal proceedings against his client Tal-Sun Choi was acquitted, Mr. Kemp said.

the 1987 trial of her father, who was charged with killing her mother. Ms. Choi, invoking the Fifth Amendment protection against forced self-incrimination, said her testimony would be different than the statement that she gave police when her mother was killed. She said she feared she would be prosecuted for giving a false statement to police. She was held In contempt by Circuit Judge Richard B.

Latham, who allowed her to remain free while she appealed the contempt finding. The Court of Appeals ruled unanimously that Judge Latham erred In ANNAPOLIS (AP) Witnesses who lie to police during a criminal investigation cannot be prosecuted for making false statements if they change their stories during courtroom testimony, the Court of Appeals ruled yesterday. The state's highest court said one result of its precedent-setting opinion is that a witness who plans to change his story can no longer avoid testifying by claiming the testimony would violate his constitutional protection against self-incrimination. The ruling came In an appeal filed by Nancy Choi, a Montgomery County woman who refused to testify in OBITUARIES Earl Shelsby 83, dies; active in labor movement Extended Care Facility. co Union Memorial Hospital.
