Memo To:   All Buffalo Teachers

From:         Philip Rumore, President, BTF

Date:          May 20, 2022


Subject:     Food Drive – Negotiations

We understand that the amount of food being sent to help the community as a result of the murders on May 14, 2022 has slowed down.

Please collect non-perishable foods at your school and bring them to BTF headquarters. We will deliver them to the community.

If possible, bring them by Wednesday, May 25, 2022. After that, we will still have groceries taken to the community; however, we would like to have them arrive as soon as possible.

Thank you on behalf of those in need.

We met with the District and PERB mediator today and have set the following dates to meet without the mediator unless necessary: May 25, June 6, 10 and 17, 2022.

The mediator has indicated that he wants the negotiations to continue without the discussions being disclosed unless he and the other side are provided sufficient notice.
