(Harrisburg) -- Professors at the 14 state-run universities are walking the picket lines for a second day.

Members of the Association of Pennsylvania State College and University Faculties are on strike after contract negotiations with the state stalled.     

The union represents more than 5,000 faculty and coaches, including those at Shippensburg, Millersville, Kutztown and Bloomsburg universities.

The State System of Higher Education says it made concessions and gave the union its best offer Tuesday night.

Late Wednesday night, APSCUF on its Facebook page that "the strike will end when negotiators reach a contract."

 Negotiations have not resumed.

The state has instructed its more than 100,000 students to attend classes unless the university indicates otherwise.
