Coach contract negotiations took place today between the Association of Pennsylvania State College and University Faculties (APSCUF) and Pennsylvania’s State System of Higher Education. The negotiation teams discussed the evaluation process and orientations.

The teams are slated to meet again July 17–18. The current four-year contract expires June 30, 2023; it remains in effect while negotiations continue. Negotiators have not set a date by which they expect to complete contract talks. In the past, APSCUF coaches have worked more than a year with an expired contract.

“We have made progress, but we’ve agreed there is much more work ahead before we reach a contract that is fair to coaches and our student-athletes,” Coach Executive Leader John Gump said. “As we have done during previous negotiations, we’ll continue to work under our current agreement.”

APSCUF represents about 5,000 faculty and coaches at the State System campuses: Bloomsburg, California, Cheyney, Clarion, East Stroudsburg, Edinboro, Indiana, Kutztown, Lock Haven, Mansfield, Millersville, Shippensburg, Slippery Rock, and West Chester.
