Faculty union members at state-owned universities voted this week to ratify their one-year tentative agreement. Of APSCUF faculty members who voted, 98.2 percent were in favor of the deal. The Association of Pennsylvania State College and University Faculties does not tally results by campus.
After members voted this Monday through Wednesday, APSCUF tallied ballots today in its Harrisburg office. With this step complete, the document goes to Pennsylvania’s State System of Higher Education’s Board of Governors for approval.
APSCUF will post the full contract, which expires June 30, 2019, on its website after ratification is complete.
“We are pleased that this process has moved along smoothly,” APSCUF President Dr. Kenneth M. Mash said. “Our members are glad that they can devote their full attention to their students during the upcoming year. We look forward to working with the System to ensure that our future negotiations are productive, fair, and orderly.”
APSCUF represents about 5,500 faculty and coaches at the State System universities: Bloomsburg, California, Cheyney, Clarion, East Stroudsburg, Edinboro, Indiana, Kutztown, Lock Haven, Mansfield, Millersville, Shippensburg, Slippery Rock, and West Chester Universities of Pennsylvania.
