(Harrisburg) -- The State System of Higher Education has reached a tentative three-year deal with the union that represents about 700 student services workers at the 14 state-owned universities.

Negotiators for the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education have announced the deal with the State College and University Professional Association. 

The union includes workers in admissions, financial aid, residence life, career services and the registrar's office.

A state system spokesman says the union has been working under a one-year contract extension that expired on June 30. 

Contract details weren't immediately available.

Union members must still approve it.  

State universities include Bloomsburg, Kutztown, Millersville and Shippensburg. 

Negotiations are scheduled to resume next week with the union that represents 5,500 faculty members and coaches. 

They've set an October 19 strike date.
