Faculty contract negotiations continued today at the Association of Pennsylvania State College and University Faculties office in Harrisburg.

Negotiators for APSCUF and the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education engaged in a productive discussion about the retrenchment article, during which the two parties shared perspectives about the financial implications and transparency concerns contained in APSCUF’s last Article 29 counterproposal.

Negotiations, which have been ongoing since late 2014, will continue Feb. 12 at the State System office in Harrisburg. The collective bargaining agreement between the parties expired June 30, 2015.

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.
