GETTYSBURG — A proposed four-year contract covering 5,500 faculty members at Pennsylvania's state-owned universities is headed for a ratification vote by the union rank and file.
The leadership body of the Association of Pennsylvania State College and University Faculties endorsed the contract agreement Friday at a meeting in Gettysburg.
Union spokeswoman Lauren Gutshall says the tally was nearly unanimous.
The faculty members of the 14 universities in the State System of Higher Education have worked without a contract since June 2011.
Officials said the proposal mirrors contracts covering tens of thousands of other state workers. It includes union concessions on health care coverage, but calls for pay raises of 1 to 2 percent in each of the last three years.
Faculty members are expected to vote on the contract in early March.
