State-owned university coaches reach agreement, faculty negotiations continue

Posted: Updated:
HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) -

Members of the negotiating team SCUPA (State College and University Professional Association) have ratified a new contract with PASSHE (Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education).

SCUPA represents approximately 600 support services officers on the 14 state-owned university campuses. On Jan. 11 the two organizations agreed on a contract that addressed a number of issues including healthcare coverage and retirement plans.

PASSHE Vice Chancellor for Human Resources and Labor Relations Gary Dent said the new agreement "is fair to both parties."

SCUPA President Frances C. Cortez Funk was also pleased by the results. "The members have spoken and overwhelmingly ratified the tentative agreement with PASSHE," he said. He added that all voices present "have been validated through the ratification process."

The tentative agreement will now go to the PASSHE Board of Governors for its approval.

Negotiations between PASSHE and the APSCUF (Association of Pennsylvania State College and University Faculties) resumed, but a settlement has not yet been attained.

PASSHE officials have expressed concern over a potential strike should negotiations fail.
