Students at Pennsylvania's 14 state-owned universities could be getting some extra time off from class if faculty members walk out on strike.

Faculty members at Pennsylvania's 14 state-owned universities are another step closer to striking.


The Association of Pennsylvania State College and University Faculties has scheduled a strike authorization vote.

It's set for Nov. 12, 13 and 14.


The union says a committee will meet in Harrisburg on Nov. 16 to begin counting ballots.


The move comes amid stalled contract negotiations.


There has never been a faculty strike at the state-owned schools,  which include Kutztown and East Stroudsburg universities.
