University strike authorization ballots to be counted

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — The union representing faculty and coaches at Pennsylvania’s 14 state-owned universities is set to begin counting ballots for a strike authorization vote amid a contract dispute that could affect about 120,000 students.

The Association of Pennsylvania State College and University Faculties is scheduled today to begin tallying votes cast at campuses across the state earlier this week.

If passed, the vote empowers union chapter presidents at each Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education campus to call a strike. Ten of the 14 must approve a walkout.

The two sides disagree on issues including compensation for temporary instructors, health care benefits and incentive pay for online education.

There has never been a faculty strike in the state system. Another negotiating session is set for Dec. 11.
