Memo To:   All Buffalo Teachers

From:         Philip Rumore, President, BTF

Date:          December 17, 2021


Subject:     Negotiations Update – School Safety

Negotiations Update
As per our last correspondence, we, and the District, have scheduled the following dates for negotiations: January 6, 11 (already scheduled with the mediator), 14, 20, 25, 26. We will schedule more if necessary. This should enable us to facilitate a proposed contract.

District Raises
As was stated previously, we took no position on the raises proposed for some City Hall administrators.


Those who asked, were told that we had no position on the raises, but expected that the teachers, on the front lines, working to prevail over seemingly impossible obstacles, deserve and should receive many, many (100) times the proposed raises. This contract should be an acknowledgement of and in appreciation for Buffalo teachers’ dedication during these unprecedented times.

School Safety
Yes, today was tense; however, we cannot take chances. Please continue to report any safety concerns to your LRS (Click Here) and This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
