Faculty contract negotiations continued Thursday between the Association of Pennsylvania State College and University Faculties (APSCUF) and Pennsylvania’s State System of Higher Education. The negotiation teams discussed personal leave, pay dates, and office hours.

“We look forward to making progress in the coming sessions, as we continue to collaboratively work toward a contract that is fair to our members and keeps our students at the forefront,” APSCUF President Dr. Kenneth M. Mash said.

“The State System and APSCUF are committed to providing a high-quality education that opens doors of opportunity for students of all ages,” PASSHE Chancellor Dan Greenstein said. “I thank the negotiating teams for their commitment to this process, and I look forward to continuing these productive discussions that are important to the success of our students and universities.”

The teams are slated to meet again Feb. 6. They previously met in December. The current four-year contract expires June 30, 2023.

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.
