NY Union President Scams Teachers
There was another incident involving a teacher union official stealing thousands of dues dollars in another forced-dues state, New York. The Empire State has mandatory, compulsory monopoly bargaining and forced dues. Forced dues privileges are automatically demanded in every school district. Teachers have no choice. Pay up or be fired. Steve Lieberman has the story at lohud.com.
Rockland Community College’s longtime union president was arrested Tuesday on charges of stealing $200,000 from the union and over billing the college by $3,000 for several European jaunts.
Prosecutors say Clifford Garner, an English professor and faculty member, ripped off the college and union over the past four years. He faces a maximum of 15 years in prison on felony charges of grand larceny and falsifying records.
