A strike is looming at Pennsylvania's 14 state-owned universities

Charlie Hoy is a communications professor at Mansfield University.  He says there has been some agreement on minor issues.
          
5,500 professors have been working without a contract for more than a year.  Ken Marshal with the Pennsylvania System of Higher Education blames the impasse on stagnate state funding.

If the strike happens, it would impact 112,000 students across the commonwealth.

For the record, there's never been a faculty strike in the 33 year history of the Pennsylvania State University System.
