Quincy Public School union members meet to vote on new information about future contract
Hundreds of Quincy Federation members filled the Machinists Hall in Quincy Tuesday tonight to educate membership on new information regarding a future contract. This follows Monday night's negotiation session with district officials.
Quincy Federation President Jen Drew told KHQA Tuesday night the session began with a conversation about what would happen if there was a strike on Monday.
For example, where members are expected to report and what a work stoppage really means.
"On Monday and Tuesday we'll be focusing our efforts on the large buildings in the district," Drew explained. "Everyone would be reporting to the high school and the junior high buildings. that's what it will look like."
Union leadership also broke down the progress made in contract talks Monday night behind closed doors.
That "progress" includes changes with language items, insurance, and benefits.
Voting will continue at union office from 9:00 A.M., to 5:30 P.M., Wednesday. Drew said the board will receive the union's decision sometime Wednesday night.
The Quincy Federation is made of more than 850 QPS employees. They include teachers, paras, secretaries, security, bus drivers, cooks, and others.
