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

Faculty union spokeswoman Lauren Gutshall says the voting will take place Monday through Wednesday at the 14 campuses.

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

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.
