HACC faculty vote for union representation

Faculty at HACC, Central Pennsylvania’s Community College, have voted to affiliate with the Pennsylvania State Education Association (PSEA). The PSEA will represent full-time and adjunct faculty in collective bargaining with the College.

“The faculty have made their decision, and we respect that,” said HACC President and CEO John J. “Ski” Sygielski, MBA, Ed.D. “We will work with the PSEA to reach a fair and equitable contract from both the College’s and faculty’s standpoint.” 

The faculty vote was 335 “yes” and 198 “no” to affiliate with the PSEA. The results still need to be certified by the Pennsylvania Labor Relations Board.

The agreement includes the approximately 60 full-time and part-time faculty at the Gettysburg HACC campus. The campus has about 1,300 students.

The union will be the sole voice for all faculty on all matters relating to wages, benefits and working conditions. Any changes to benefits or salary will be subject to the collective bargaining process.
