A fifth coaches joint-bargaining session was held Monday, Dec. 7, at the Association of Pennsylvania State College and University Faculties building.
The Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education started the meeting by offering a counterproposal to APSCUF Coaches’ one-year interim proposal of Oct. 20. The State System’s counterproposal contained substantial healthcare cost increases, proposing the same cuts to healthcare insurance that the system instituted for nonrepresented employees.
The State System’s counterproposal also contained a traditional mid-year annual salary adjustment wage increase that was reduced from what APSCUF Coaches initially proposed in October.
The parties are scheduled to meet next on Monday, Jan. 11, 2016, at the State System, at which time APSCUF will formally respond to the State System’s counterproposal.
