Massachusetts Teacher Union Officials Mix it Up With Superintendent

Mike Antonucci has the story, complete with police report excerpts, of a skirmish between teacher union officials in Lowell, Massachusetts, the Superintendent and a school principal.

Police escorted Jennifer Salmon, Chelmsford Federation of Teachers president, and Eric Blanchet, field representative for the American Federation of Teachers, out of Harrington School following the incident.

Excerpted from police report:

Blanchet told me that he had come to the school early this morning to have a meeting with (school principal) Tobin regarding ongoing issues in the teachers union. When he was told the meeting would not be happening he grew upset, and began to ask the principal why. When I told him that his actions were unacceptable in a public school during school hours, he replied with “Well, I have a job to do!”
