Our membership is comprised of eleven units: Central Office, Custodial, Elementary Clerical, Food Services, Plant Maintenance, Secondary Schools, Sentries, Storehouse, Transportation, Occupational & Physical Therapists, and Project Workers.

BENTE stands for the Board of Education Non-teaching Employees, and our union represents hard working men and women that provide the basic necessities of life for your children: cleanliness, security, food, safety, supplies, transportation, and support.

We are consistently working on behalf of our membership to negotiate better contracts that ensure decent health care, equitable raises, and fair treatment in the workplace. Our members are the backbone of the Rochester City School District, and the services that they perform are necessary for schools to operate efficiently.
