School District of Philadelphia v.

Philadelphia Federation of Teachers

On behalf of the School District and the SRC, Richard L. Bazelon, A. Richard Feldman, and Lisa A. Barton filed an Application for leave to file an Exclusive Jurisdiction Complaint for Declaratory Judgment in the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania.

The Complaint sought a determination whether the School District and the School Reform Commission had the right to unilaterally implement changes in work rules and practices that fall into the category of non-mandatory or permissive bargaining topics, after the collective bargaining agreement expired. The Application was denied per curiam in June 2014, over two dissents.
