Statement by Mayor William Peduto on Pittsburgh Public Schools Contract Talks

PITTSBURGH, PA (February 16, 2018) Mayor William Peduto issued the following statement regarding contract talks today between leaders of Pittsburgh Public Schools and the Pittsburgh Federation of Teachers (PFT): 

"Both the County Executive and I have offered our assistance in brokering a compromise and helping in all ways to solve the contract dispute between the PFT and the schools administration.  

My hope is that the President and Superintendent will be able to reach a deal today.  

If not, I will continue to work to assure that the interests of our students and their families come first. And I will continue to reach out to the Superintendent and the Board to offer my resources, and the resources of our city, to resolve this issue before our schools close.  

To be certain, I will continue to be involved in this matter, as would any Mayor who had the possibility of a strike in their city."
