The Pittsburgh Business Times reports that faculty at Pennsylvania’s 14 public institutions have something to think about days after they authorized a strike.

“Our faculty provide extraordinary contributions to the success of both our students and our universities, and we recognize that fact,” said state system spokesman Kenn Marshall. “At the same time, the universities are facing their most serious fiscal challenges ever. That also is a fact. We must balance both of these factors in order to achieve a settlement that is fair to everyone, especially to our students.”
