Monday was the first day of classes following spring break at the Community College of Philadelphia. Monday night, faculty and staff of CCP met and decided not to strike for now.

After more than a year of increasingly tense contract negotiations, the situation has come to a head at CCP. Last month, the college's administration extended what it called its final offer.

"The real stumbling block right now is that they're really refusing to bargain. They've thrown this offer down on the table and have insisted that they're not going to budge from it," says Steve Jones, co-president of the Faculty and Staff Federation.

The union has balked over changes to health benefits sought by CCP. The changes, which the union says will hurt its lowest-paid members the most, would add a deductible to health coverage. The union would prefer bigger changes to co-pays.
