Memo To:   All Buffalo Teachers

From:         Philip Rumore, President, BTF

Date:          September 24, 2020


Subject:     Judge's Decision

As, unfortunately anticipated, Judge Sedita ruled against our motion to prevent the District from forcing teachers now and students in the future from risking their lives in unsafe and unhealthy conditions in our schools. The District stated that no one in the schools has come down with the virus as proof of their position. We will not wait until someone dies to prove our schools are unsafe.


We will proceed with the grievance to arbitration and of course appeal his decision.


We will be filing legal papers on another issue next week.


Stay Tuned.



We will continue to fight and never give up until our schools are safe for you and our students.


Please stay well. Take no chances.
