Only Pa. State System of Higher Ed faculty left without contract following coaches' agreement
- The Association of Pennsylvania State College and University Faculties reached a tentative agreement for the 400 coaches at the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education's 14 state universities, leaving the system's faculty as the only bargaining unit without a contract.
- More details on the coaches' agreement are expected to be disclosed once it is ratified, but it includes an increase in minimum salaries and a revised health care co-payment similar to terms accepted by other unions in the system and runs through June 30, 2015.
- APSCUF is also the union representing the 5,000 professors in the system who have been working without a contract since June 2011, and who voted in November to authorize a strike that may happen in Spring, pending negotiations that are set to resume on Wednesday.
