HARRISBURG — Union faculty at Pennsylvania's 14 state-owned universities have given their leadership the authority to call a strike.


The Association of Pennsylvania State College and University Faculties announced results of a vote Friday. Members had cast ballots at 14 campuses across the state earlier this week.


The vote empowers union chapter presidents at each school to call a strike. Ten of the 14 must approve a walkout.


Faculty and coaches have been working without a contract since June 2011. Talks have stalled over issues including compensation for temporary instructors, health care benefits and online education.


There has never been a faculty strike in the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education.


Another negotiating session is set for Dec. 11. Meanwhile, classes will continue for the system's 120,000 students.
