Williamsburg Special Ed Public School Principal Harassed UFT Rep, Cops Say
WILLIAMSBURG — The principal of a South Williamsburg public school allegedly harassed a UFT representative inside her school last week, according to a police report.
Principal Michelle Thornton Mannix of P.S. K 141 — a school serving disabled students at 370 Marcy Ave., in the Hasidic section of South Williamsburg — allegedly pushed the union delegate, who was at the school to represent a teacher, last Wednesday morning.
According to the report, the principal started yelling during a meeting, so the UFT representative tried to leave the room, but Mannix allegedly held her hands up by the door and pushed the representative in the chest.
Cops said no further action would be taken unless the UFT worker pressed charges.
Mannix did not respond to calls requesting comment.
