PASSHE, PA University Coaches Strike Tentative Deal

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - Pennsylvania's 14 state-owned universities and the union representing their athletic coaches have reached tentative contract agreement.

The State System of Higher Education said Friday the pact covers about 400 coaches represented by the Association of Pennsylvania State College and University Faculties.

The system didn't release details but says the coaches are likely to vote on the pact early next year.

That leaves a separate bargaining unit representing 6,000 faculty members as the only unit without a contract agreement. The faculty members have authorized union leaders to call a strike but talks are continuing.

The universities are in Bloomsburg, California, Cheyney, Clarion, East Stroudsburg, Edinboro, Indiana, Kutztown, Lock Haven, Mansfield, Millersville, Shippensburg, Slippery Rock and West Chester.
