Memo To:   All Buffalo Teachers

From:         Philip Rumore, President, BTF

Date:          December 8, 2022 


Subject:    Negotiations 

With Superintendent Tonja M. Williams at negotiations, the negotiating team agrees that there was significant movement made today and therefore another Vote of No Confidence for the Superintendent and the Board should not be taken.


We will be meeting with the Fact-Finder on December 13, 2022, at which time he will seek answers to questions he has and explore issues.


He will then make non-binding recommendations on what he believes provides a fair contract settlement.
We are scheduling subcommittee meetings on issues that we believe may be agreed to.


We have also left open the possibility of full negotiating team meetings before the Fact-Finder’s recommendations are received, if warranted.


Stay Tuned.
