Coaches union, state-owned universities board reach tentative contract deal
The Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education has announced a tentative contract agreement with the coaches at PASSHE's 14 state-owned universities.
The coaches are represented by the Association of Pennsylvania State College and University Faculties union. APSCUF also represents faculty members, with whom PASSHE has not reached an agreement.
PASSHE said details of the tentative agreement, which would run through June 30, 2015, will be released upon its ratification. The coaches likely will vote sometime in late January or early February.
PASSHE said members of the State College and University Professional Association, with which it reached a tentative agreement in October, will begin voting today on whether to ratify that agreement. SCUPA represents approximately 600 admissions, financial aid, residence life and other student support services officers.
PASSHE said it “has now successfully concluded negotiations with all of its bargaining units, with the exception of the unit representing faculty.”
