Faculty union's binding arbitration request denied by Pennsylvania State System Of Higher Education
- A request to take an almost two-year contract dispute to binding arbitration by the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education's faculty union has been refused by the 14 state universities' managers.
- The union represents over 5,000 professors and has been working without a contract since Jan. 30, 2011, and though there is currently general agreement around a salary in a proposed contract, temporary faculty pay, health benefits and distance education pay continue to hold up negotiations.
- A strike authorization vote will be considered by the union at a meeting this weekend.
