BENTE Union Update (4-23-23) -- Safety and Security; In Memoriam; School Board Endorsements
April 24, 2023

BENTE UNION MEMBERS, please take note of the following updates: 

SAFETY & SECURITY: Please be advised that the four RCSD Unions (BENTE, ASAR, RAP, RTA) will be holding a joint press conference related to district-wide safety concerns at noon on Monday, April 24th at the RTA office.  Attached is the resolution we will be presenting.  Please be aware that when schools are mentioned in the document, we are also talking about all off-site RCSD locations, which includes the District’s Central Office, Service Center, and other locations that are not considered schools.   

The attached resolution was shared with Superintendent Peluso on Friday afternoon.   






Mario Caletz, who retired as a Troubleshooter for the District, passed away at the end of March. Mario was a kind person who believed in fairness for everyone.  

A memorial service was held for Mario on April 8 at his favorite place, Shoshin Karate-Do. 

Rest in Peace, Brother. 

RCSD SCHOOL BOARD ENDORSEMENTS: The BENTE Political Action Committee has finished interviewing all of the candidates for Rochester City School Board and has officially endorsed the following candidates: Isaiah Santiago, Beatriz Lebron, Amy Maloy, and Ricardo Adams.  

If you have an issue or comment, please do not hesitate to e-mail me directly at

In Solidarity, 

Daniel DiClemente, President
