For the first time ever, Edinboro University faculty may go on strike.
They're making that decision, right now.
Members of the Association of Pennsylvania State College and University Faculties (APSCUF) are now in the process of taking a strike authorization vote.
As we've been reporting, both the union and the state system of higher education say they've actually informally agreed on wages. But apparently, health care is a big problem for the union, along with a proposal to cut pay for part-time faculty.
We're told, little progress has been made in recent weeks and the state system chancellor rejected going to binding arbitration.
Union leaders say the vote includes 400 members at Edinboro. It's expected to be decided by Wednesday afternoon. A "yes" vote doesn't necessarily mean a work stoppage. But, it gives leadership the choice to strike.
