The two sides have until Nov. 27 to appeal the ruling to the full labor board, and both said yesterday that they were considering doing so.
Arthur Hochner, president of the Temple Association of University Professionals, bargaining agent for the faculty, called the ruling "a terrific defeat for Temple and a terrific victory for the union."
Still, he said the union might appeal the decision in order to press its case that professors who made up all of the class time lost during the strike are entitled to 100 percent of their regular pay. A decision on a possible appeal will be announced next week, Hochner said.
Jack E. Freeman, Temple's executive vice president, said the university's trustees would meet tomorrow in closed session to decide on a possible appeal as well.
"On the one hand, the hearing examiner agreed with us that the striking faculty did not fulfill all of their obligations and that we had bargained in good faith," Freeman said.
"But we do not agree with his remedy nor with his assertion that we committed an unfair labor practice," he added.
John B. Langel, a Temple attorney, said the administration wanted a negotiated settlement about back pay. He noted that the union membership last fall rejected a tentative contract settlement that would have given professors makeup pay amounting to 33 percent of their regular salaries.
Under the hearing officer's order, Temple would be required to spend about $2 milion on makeup pay, according to administration estimates.
