School Board will vote on deal Friday morning
The members of the Quincy Federation of Teachers have ratified a new three-year contract.
QFT officials announced passage of the deal Wednesday evening after giving its membership three days to vote on the proposal, which gives 1 percent annual raises and freezes health insurance costs for the duration of the deal.
The Quincy School Board will vote on the contract at a special meeting Friday at 8 a.m.
Members of the Quincy Federation of Teachers heard details of the contract offer from the Quincy School District on Monday.
According to sources, the proposed contract is a three-year deal that will freeze the cost of health insurance for district employees for the length of the contract.
The School District plans to switch from a self-insurance plan to a Blue Cross/Blue Shield plan that district officials say will save $500,000 annually.
Teachers would receive a 1 percent raise each year with STEP increases.
Teachers have until Wednesday to vote on the contract. If they ratify the contract, the Quincy School Board will vote on it at a special meeting Friday morning.
