In Fallsburg, New York, heroin and drug paraphernalia were found in the faculty bathroom at Benjamin Cosor Elementary School, twice. Unions are refusing drug testing for employees. Imagine how “high” you have to be to forget your baggy of drugs and needles or whatever in your workplace. Of course teachers get high in the classroom. How naive to think otherwise. This particular school is not exactly a shining beacon of education, as you’ll see in the graphic below. In other union news, Philadelphia Ironworkers Local 401 have been charged with burning down a Quaker Church.
Dark Blue represents the scores for Benjamin Cosor Elementary School 6th grraders. Light Blue represents Fallsbury Central School District. Gray represents the State of New York as a whole.
The teachers union stepped in and refused drug testing of of the group of employees police had narrowed their investigation to. Of the 8 the police were looking at, only the non-union employee submitted to testing.
A letter informing parents of the incident only disclosed that “An employee of the District found drugs and related paraphernalia in a school rest room.” It failed to mention that the drug was heroin, that it was found more than once and that it was discovered in the faculty lounge.

The group of self-described THUGS—an acronym for “Those Helpful Union Guys”—allegedly burned down the meetinghouse as part of a wider campaign of violence against non-union work sites across the city.
The indictment goes on to describe how the union used non-union point men in an effort to distance the union from allegations of violence. Those individuals served as scouts in order to identify and threaten any construction site that was not utilizing union labor.
“The defendants had a network of individuals, friendly to the Ironworkers Local 401, to help identify construction projects and job sites where work was being performed without using Local 401 members,” the FBI said. “The indictment alleges that business agents would approach construction foremen at those work sites and imply or explicitly threaten violence, destruction of property, or other criminal acts unless union members were hired.”
If convicted of all charges, four union leaders each face up to 130 years in prison, while six other alleged co-conspirators face 20-to-40-year prison terms. Read more at Free Beacon
We and our children are held hostage to lawless Teacher’s unions, the vilest of all organized labor, in my opinion.
