A labor union set up a disturbing display of a casket and a photo depicting a dead person’s feet outside of a grade school in New Jersey to protest the district hiring a contractor for a construction project, which sparked the school’s superintendent to knock it over.
“For the safety of the children, as the Superintendent of Schools, I really had no choice but to protect them. I responded immediately to the coffin on school property and knocked it to the ground,” superintendent of Edison Township public schools, Bernard Bragen, said in a statement to Fox News.
The article goes on to state the following:
The situation unfolded on Friday, after LIUNA Laborers Local 77 had already set up an inflatable rat at the school earlier this week to protest a $9 million construction project at the school. The district was required to hire the lowest bidder for the project, Pal-Pro Builders of Bergen County, but the union said the group does not hire local workers, NJ Advance Media reported.
“I learned that LIUNA Laborers Local 77 returned to our Lincoln Elementary School, this time setting up the inflatable giant rat and in addition, a real coffin,” Bragen said in a statement. “I cannot believe that any adults, regardless of the issues at hand, would think it was appropriate to place a coffin with a graphic image of a deceased body at the entrance of an elementary school on the first full day of school after the year we all just experienced.”
Bragen said more than an hour calling police, the union, and others in an effort to have the display removed before the students arrived.
”They said, ‘tough s—,’” Bragen told NJ Advance Media.
Bragen toppled the casket and had it covered with a tarp.
