Negotiations to avoid faculty strike at state universities continue

HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – Faculty and the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education will continue a marathon bargaining session Saturday in hopes of avoiding a strike.

The first of the three day meetings ended Friday without any progress.

Faculty have been working without a contract since June of 2015. They have been negotiating since late 2014.

If a deal isn’t reached, faculty will go on strike Wednesday.

APSCUF represents about 5,500 faculty and coaches at the state universities: Bloomsburg, California, Cheyney, Clarion, East Stroudsburg, Edinboro, Indiana, Kutztown, Lock Haven, Mansfield, Millersville, Shippensburg, Slippery Rock, and West Chester Universities of Pennsylvania.
