HACC Faculty Vote for Union Representation
HARRISBURG, Pa. – 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.
