The contract is a three year deal that would end at June 30, 2018. Details of the contract are not yet available and the agreement must still be ratified by the members of APSCUF and then approved by the State System’s Board of Governors.

In a press release, APSCUF President Dr. Kenneth M. Mash said, “We have phenomenal students, and we are proud to be able to return to the classroom to supply the quality of public higher education they deserve.”

Both sides also thanked Governor Wolf for his involvement in the negotiations leading to this tentative agreement. This strike was the first in APSCUF’s history.
