Threats Made to National Teachers Unions Firm in Brookfield
Company and WEAC official report receiving threatening and harassing phone calls.
By Lisa Sink

Correction (Nov. 22): The FBI has not been monitoring a Brookfield-based national marketing firm that represents teachers unions. The original version of this story said FBI agents were in the business’s parking lot monitoring it after threats, but the agents were parked there for unrelated surveillance, Brookfield police said Tuesday. The Brookfield Patch regrets the error.

United Education Profession in Brookfield called police several times last week to report employees had receiving harassing, threatening phone calls.

The same week that an effort to recall Gov. Scott Walker was launched, employees of United Education Profession called police three times about threats and suspicious vehicles in its Burleigh Road parking lot.

The first recall Walker petitions were signed just after midnight Tuesday, and a rally and march was held Tuesday evening outside Walker’s Wauwatosa home. The rally was organized by We Are Milwaukee, whose spokesman Ted Kraig, is an employee with Council 10 of the Wisconsin Education Association Council, the state teachers union. The union is located in the same building as United Education Profession.
