ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — The head of the union for non-teaching RCSD employees, BENTE, says 221 employees in the union have received layoff notices.

Dan DiClemente says they received them Tuesday night.

The majority of the employees who received notices were school security officers and food service workers.

The Rochester City School District made the decision to go all-remote for the first 10 weeks of class.

The layoffs have been looming since mid-August, with BENTE attempting to negotiate with RCSD leaders.

RCSD is expected to lose about $130 million under Gov. Andrew Cuomo's 20% state aid cuts.
