Pa. university system ratifies contracts for faculty, coaches

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

The Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education has ratified new contract agreements with the union representing faculty and athletic coaches at state-owned universities.

The two agreements, which run through June 30, 2015, were previously ratified by members of the Association of Pennsylvania State College and University Faculties.

State university faculty and coaches had been working without a contract since July 1, 2011.

PASSHE spokesman Kenn Marshall said the new agreement with the faculty includes general pay increases of 1 percent in 2012-13 and 2013-14 and 2 percent in 2014-15.

Faculty also will receive either annual service increments of 2.5 percent or 5 percent in each of the three years as they move up the salary schedule, or annual cash payments equivalent to 2.5 percent of their base salary if they already are at the top of the pay scale.

Coaches will receive salary increases of 2.5 percent in 2012-13 and 2.25 percent in 2013-14, as well as performance-based merit pools of 3 percent each in 2013-14 and 2014-15.

Minimum salaries for both head and assistant coaches will be increased in 2015.
