    Union seeks severance for teacher convicted of raping student

    Published December 12, 2013 /
    FoxNews.com


    A teacher’s union in Michigan is fighting to get a $10,000 severance package for a convicted child molester whose case that drew outrage earlier this year when his former school colleagues pleaded with a judge to sentence him lightly.

    Neal Erickson, 38, pleaded guilty in May to raping a young boy over the course of three years — from 2006 to 2009 — and was sentenced to 15-30 years in prison. The prison term came over the pleas of seven of Erickson's former fellow teachers at Rose City Middle School, including Sally Campbell, who said in a letter to the judge that “Neal made a mistake. He allowed a mutual friendship to develop into much more."

    Circuit Court Judge Michael Baumgartner, saying he was "appalled and ashamed that the community could rally around" Erickson, sentenced him to the lengthy prison term, but FoxNews.com reported earlier this year that parents were furious. The decision by the Michigan Education Association to seek severance pay, reported first by EAGNews.org, is the latest example of teachers rallying around Erickson.

    It’s completely ludicrous,” the boy’s father, John Janczewski, told EAGNews. “Are they nuts in the head? How can the union file a grievance and back a child molester? We’re very upset about it.”


    The union has acknowledged taking Erickson’s case to arbitration on behalf of the disgraced educator, but declined to elaborate.

    “We don’t make a practice of discussing any case,” MEA’s Ron Parkinson told the website. “It’s based on contractual compliance and that’s really all I can say. We filed for arbitration [Friday].”

    Janczewski said he’s now committed to do whatever he can to stop the delivery of the severance package, money that he claims should instead be destined for his son.

    “We as a family in no way is going to let this happen,” he said. “I mean, a child molester paid to molest a student? He doesn’t deserve it. I don’t think the union wants the publicity we’ll bring on this.”

    In September, FoxNews.com reported that enrollment in the West Branch-Rose City School District was unofficially down 87 percent following a tumultuous summer in which angry parents blasted teachers for writing letters in support of Erickson. When the school board declined to take action against the teachers, many parents vowed to pull their kids out of the public schools, which have a total enrollment of roughly 2,000 students.

    “I can’t speculate as to why the students have left, but there were certainly parents who vocalized that they were pulling their children out of school because of the teacher’s support,” West Branch-Rose City School Superintendent Daniel Cwayna told FoxNews.com in September. “We addressed the issue as best we could without infringing upon the teacher’s first amendment rights. There’s only so much we can do.”

    Sure, I'd give him severance, his head from his body, with an axe.

    WV is forced union for sure, ask some of the locals who offered to be flaggers for $10 an hour. The union flaggers (out-of-staters) were making $30 an hour. Nothing like get laughed at.

    For those of you unfamiliar with law, if the union does not represent the piece of crap, the union could well be sued instead. If the school district does the paper work correctly, the piece of crap should get nothing.:realmad: Castration with rusty knife is in order...:realmad:

    Legal to protect oneself except this from his co workers kind of makes one wonder as to the others in that system.

    Lets see I believe Detroit is.... was one of the most heavily unionized cities. Isn't that in Michagan? Camden NJ another in the blue column and lets not forget Illinois swerling around the bowl. Oh and one large city in Ca. in the dumper.

    So, you seem to be onto something there, Sparky. That being, unions really aren't the problem. States that have no unions are the poorest in the nation, states that have unions are in terrible shape. That should lead you to think a little bit more profoundly, and that is, UNIONS AREN'T THE PROBLEM!!!!

    What the hell is wrong with you people? How many times are going to make this same stupid mistake, and say the same stupid things? Union membership is lower than what it was in 1912. About 7% of all private workers are unionized, 5% of public employees are rank and file. Whole swaths of the economy have no unions, e.g., financial services. It's apparent that many of yass have no idea what it is you're posting...

    You have NO idea what you're posting. Detroit's average pension for its nonuniform employees is $19,000/year, for LEO's/fire, its $30,000. That's hardly grandiose. For some other cities, there are much worse pension obligations, but if you think that the amount that Detroit is paying for its former employees is too much, you have not a clue....
