APSCUF coaches reach tentative contract agreement

HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – A tentative agreement has been reached between Pennsylvania’s State System of Higher Education and coach negotiators representing 14 state-owned universities.

The agreement made Thursday comes 485 days after the coaches’ previous contract expired.

The new deal runs through June 30, 2019.

“It’s been a long, and at times, difficult process, but I’m very pleased with the deal we have reached,” APSCUF Coach Executive Leader John Gump said in a release. “It provides reasonable salary increases for our members while keeping the costs of our healthcare plan affordable. Now, we can get back to doing what we love — coaching our teams and working with our student-athletes.”

Just last week, APSCUF negotiators reached a tentative contract agreement, ending a strike by faculty members.

APSCUF represents about 5,500 faculty and coaches.
