Memo To:   All Buffalo Teachers

From:         Philip Rumore, President, BTF

Date:          June 21, 2022


Subject:     June 21, 2022

As per our last correspondence, we are scheduled to meet with the PERB mediator on Thursday, June 23, 2022.

We have had numerous concerns raised by teachers relating to other Board Unions giving up retiree healthcare for new members.


The BTF has never sacrificed our new members in this way.


First, where would you be if this had been done to you?


Second, it sets new members, against veteran members dividing the union.


There are obviously more reasons that Buffalo teachers have never voted for such a change.


Yes, the Board has a proposal to make this change. We have obviously not agreed to it.


Media Negotiations
We are still working with NYSUT on our media releases. We will update you when we receive the information from NYSUT.
