Memo To:   All Buffalo Teachers
From:         Philip Rumore, President, BTF
Date:          September 3, 2019


Subject:     Blatant Violation of Our Contract

We have been informed that principals are assigning teachers to teach six (6) periods per day instead of five (5).


This is a clear violation of our contract, obviously done to impact our negotiations for a new contract.


Teachers should not agree to violate our contract.


If you have been scheduled to teach more than the contractual five (5) periods per day, please advise us as we will be filing a Federation grievance.


If your principal has been advised to do this, please find out by whom or how they were so advised.


We expect that the District will try this and other actions to undermine our negotiations.


Send all such contract violations to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Please include name, contact information, school and details.


We will not let them undermine our contract and negotiations.
