Quincy Public School officials and union members spent more than three hours behind closed doors Tuesday discussing a counter-proposal from the Quincy Federation.

Quincy Federation President Jen Drew tells KHQA Tuesday night that increased insurance fees is the factor keeping both sides from reaching an agreement.

She added that the district representatives were not able to agree or have anything new to offer. Therefore a meeting for next week is planned.

“We went in tonight with a counter proposal to offer to the board," Drew explained. "We wanted them to hear testimonials from each sub group about how this is impacting the people, the harm, especially the insurance fees.”

As of 9:45 p.m. Tuesday, Drew tells KHQA the meeting agreed upon for next week has been cancelled by school district officials.

QPS Superintendent Roy Webb tells KHQA a state mediator will email future dates for the next meeting later this week.

The Quincy Federation is made of several groups representing more than 850 district employees.
