Negotiators early this morning reached an agreement in principle for the faculty contract between Pennsylvania’s State System of Higher Education and the Association of Pennsylvania State College and University Faculties.
The agreement followed a full day and night of bargaining. Legal counsel for APSCUF and the State System will continue to finalize language before a tentative agreement is available for APSCUF members to view. The ratification process will begin after the language is completed.
Details will not be released to the public until the process of ratification and approval is complete.
The four-year agreement, if approved, would activate upon ratification by APSCUF and the State System’s Board of Governors. The most recent contract ended June 30; by law, that contract remains in effect until a new collective bargaining agreement is ratified.
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.
