Memo To:   All Buffalo Teachers

From:         Philip Rumore, President, BTF

Date:          November 9, 2022


Subject:    Negotiations

We received notification at 8:37 a.m. today (November 9, 2022) that “the District is cancelling negotiations today.”

The District needed more time to cost out and analyze proposals discussed on Monday, November 7, 2022. They expect to have this completed for the next session on November 21, 2022.

First, they had to wait until 8:37 a.m. today to cancel? They couldn’t have notified us on Monday or Tuesday (they have our email and personal phone numbers)?

In addition, there were issues on which there was apparent agreement and others which could have been discussed and agreed upon.

We ask that all schools picket outside their schools tomorrow morning to show their anger.

We will also have our next picket/rally before the next Board meeting on Wednesday, November 16, 2022.

More information will follow.
