Professors at 14 Pennsylvania state universities went on strike Wednesday, disrupting classes midsemester for more than 100,000 students, after contract negotiations hit an impasse.The union represents more than 5,000 faculty and coaches across the state.State-related schools -- Penn State, Temple University, the University of Pittsburgh and Lincoln University -- are not affected.The state said despite the strike, students should report to their scheduled classes, unless the university indicates otherwise.Victoria Tischio, a full-time tenured English professor and the university's picket chair, said some 500 of the university's about 950 professors had signed up for the walkout. About 77 percent of the university's professors are full-time union members, she said.The school's approximately 17, 000 students received an email from administrators reminding them the university will not close.
