City Honors parents ask mayor to intervene in school's labor dispute

Parents and students from City Honors School took their complaints to Mayor Byron W. Brown on Thursday, rallying outside the Buffalo Niagara Convention Center prior to his State of the City address.

The parents and students rallied as part of the ongoing controversy involving the labor dispute between the school district and the teachers union, which would result in cutting 5.5 teaching positions from the school. Students and parents tried to urge the mayor to bring both sides back to the bargaining table before cuts are scheduled to take effect on Tuesday.

The teachers union has asked a judge to block the cuts so a mediator can help settle the matter.
