Memo To:   All Buffalo Teachers

From:         Philip Rumore, President, BTF

Date:          October 12, 2022


Subject:    Updates - October 12, 2022

As per our Friday, October 7, 2022 email, there was sufficient progress with the Superintendent present at our negotiations that we are postponing a possible Vote of No Confidence in the Superintendent and Board until October 24, 2022.


We have meetings on issues this week and a negotiations session is scheduled for Friday, October 14, 2022.


In case, we are preparing to picket the Superintendent and Board members’ houses if it becomes necessary. Hopefully, it won’t.


Our next all member picket will be before the next Board Meeting on Wednesday, October 19th.


Date: October 19, 2022
Time: 4:00 p.m. - The Board meeting starts at 5:30
Where: BAVPA 


More details to come as negotiations proceed.


Healthcare for Future Retirees
Those who are contacting others regarding retiree healthcare for future teachers should know that the District has seen these and have now moved it up in priorities.


While you may not realize it, you are undermining our negotiations.

School Schedule Changes
In response to teachers’ and parents’ inquiries, the District is in the process of sending the proposed schedule changes for each school to the staff and parents at the schools. Once again, any MOU has to be voted on by the Executive Committee, Council of Delegates and teachers.
