APSCUF and Pennsylvania’s State System of Higher Education in September reached an agreement in principle for a new faculty contract, and APSCUF members voted in November to ratify the agreement. The document now goes to the State System for approval. The most recent contract expired June 30; by law, that contract remains in effect until a new collective bargaining agreement is ratified.
