(Harrisburg) -- Thousands of faculty members at the state-owned universities are poised to vote next week on the ratification of their first contract in nearly two years.shippe

Lauren Gutshall, spokeswoman for the faculty union, says the voting will take place from Monday through Wednesday at the campuses, including Millersville, Kutztown, Bloomsburg and Shippensburg.

Gutshall says the ballots will be counted at the Harrisburg headquarters of the Association of Pennsylvania State College and University Faculties on Friday, March 8.

The 5,500 faculty members in the State System of Higher Education have been working without a contract since June 2011.

The four-year pact recommended by union leaders includes concessions on health care, but calls for pay raises of one or two percent in each of the last three years.
