Pa. college faculty report contract talks stalled
HARRISBURG (AP) – The union representing faculty at Pennsylvania’s 14 public universities says contract talks have stalled again.
The Association of Pennsylvania State College and University Faculties said a bargaining session Wednesday yielded no progress on issues including health care and online education.
The union says the State System of Higher Education is expected to offer a new comprehensive proposal before negotiations Feb. 1.
Union members have been working without a contract since June 2011. They have authorized their leadership to call a strike.
System officials say they’re committed to a fair contract but must rein in spiraling costs.
The union is urging members to express their frustration at the system’s Board of Governors meeting Thursday.
The universities serve about 115,000 students. The spring semester starts Jan. 28.
