Quincy teachers ratify contract
Details will be provided following Wednesday night’s Quincy School Board meeting.
QUINCY — The Quincy Federation of Teachers has approved a new multi-year labor contract with the Quincy School District.
While Muddy River News has learned that the teachers will receive pay increases in each year of the deal, no official details have been released.
The union has subgroups representing teachers, paraprofessionals, custodians, secretaries, security employees and workers in food service and transportation. QFT represents around 90 percent of QSD 172 employees, while the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers and the Service Employees International Union represent the rest.
Voting began on Tuesday and closed midnight Thursday.
Brandi Many, president of the union’s sub-group, said each of the sub-groups ratified their portions of the contract.
The Quincy School Board is expected to approve the contract at next week’s meeting, which is scheduled for 6 p.m. Wednesday, May 18.
Many and Quincy School Board Vice-President Shelley Arns said the two sides would release a joint statement after the meeting and make details available.
