  • Remember the Fact-Finder’s report is not binding on either side. Once it is released, each side will take a position on its contents and negotiations will resume. It will be made public.
  • As per our time-line, now that the Fact-Finder has been named, we will be sending the Superintendent and Board of Education data on Buffalo Teachers/Erie County Teachers (salaries/steps/lifetime earnings, etc.)
  • We have sent the Fact-Finder the materials he requested. We will also have a preliminary virtual/phone conference with him next week as per his request.
  • Other actions – rally, etc. being planned.


Stay tuned.
