During their third consecutive day of contract negotiations, teams from the Association of Pennsylvania State College and University Faculties and the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education discussed various provisions.
Talks began at 11 a.m. and concluded around 7:45 p.m. at a neutral location. The parties are scheduled to reconvene tomorrow.
APSCUF this morning asked the State System to enter binding arbitration, during which a three-person panel could conclude the contract dispute.
Faculty and coach contracts expired June 30, 2015. Negotiations have been ongoing since late 2014.
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.
