Faculty, Pa. university system reps to meet Friday



Published: Thu, January 31, 2013 @ 4:57 p.m.

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Pennsylvania’s state university system and its faculty are set to meet again as they try to resolve a prolonged contract dispute.

Union members have been working without a contract since June 2011. They have authorized their leadership to call a strike if necessary.

Negotiations are set to resume Friday.

Hundreds of faculty members from the 14 state-owned universities protested last week outside the State System of Higher Education offices while the board of governors heard from both sides.

The union says the system is making unreasonable demands for concessions on health coverage and other issues. School officials say concessions are necessary to ensure affordable, quality education.

The so-called faculty union (APSCUF) is a paper tiger and will cave in to the demands of the PA higher ed bureaucrats who call the shots for this company union. If they don't and actually, for the first time ever, call a strike more than half the spineless faculty will cross the picket line within a day.
