QPS Union strike will affect students outside the Quincy Public School District

QPS Union strike will affect students outside the Quincy Public School District

More than 850 Quincy Public School employees prepare to walk off the job in less than two weeks.

The strike comes about a month after Union members voted to file an intent to strike, you can read more about that here.

Quincy Notre Dame Principal Mark McDowell says this strike will affect his students.

He says more than 100 QND students travel to Quincy High School for vocational classes and drivers ed.

Those students will not be able at attend those classes if QPS union members strike next week.

"I would say it's minimal but none the less there is an interruption and there will be some things we'll have to remedy on the other end, especially depending on how many days it could last. Those are lost instructional hours that must be made up in some way, shape, or form," says McDowell.

McDowell says if QND students miss those classes at QHS, the Quincy Public School District will determine how to reschedule those hours.

Another thing that could be affected by this strike is the Blue Devil Thanksgiving Tournament

On Tuesday, the Tournament Committee will hold a press conference to talk about what this may mean for the traditional holiday tournament.
