LEGAL IMPLICATIONS OF CONCERTED ACTION OF TEACHERS.
BUTLER, HENRY E., JR.
THE AUTHOR STATES THAT GROWING DEMANDS BY ORGANIZED TEACHERS FOR NEGOTIATION CONCERNING EMPLOYMENT CONDITIONS AND POLICY FORMULATION HAVE BEEN ACCOMPANIED BY A WILLINGNESS TO ACCEPT SUCH BARGAINING THROUGH PROCEDURES WHICH DO NOT INTERRUPT ORDERLY SCHOOL OPERATION. TRADITIONAL LEGAL AUTHORITY OF LOCAL BOARDS OF EDUCATION TO MAKE UNILATERAL POLICY DECISIONS IS GIVING WAY TO A DIVERSE SET OF NEGOTIATION PROCEDURES BASED MORE UPON DISCRETIONARY ACTION OF LOCAL BONDS THAN UPON LEGISLATION. BOARDS OF EDUCATION WILL ENGAGE MORE FREQUENTLY IN COLLECTIVE NEGOTIATIONS, BOTH BY VOLUNTARY ACTION AND BY PRESSURES EXERTED AGAINST THEM. ALTHOUGH TEACHERS MAY NOT LEGALLY STRIKE IN ANY STATE, TEACHER ORGANIZATIONS ARE CONTINUING TO BROADEN THE AREA OPEN TO NEGOTIATION. UNRESOLVED ISSUES INCLUDE WHETHER STATE LEGISLATION SHOULD BE ENACTED TO ASSURE COLLECTIVE NEGOTIATIONS BY TEACHERS AND WHETHER SUCH LEGISLATION SHOULD APPLY TO ALL PUBLIC EMPLOYEES OR WHETHER PUBLIC SCHOOL PERSONNEL SHOULD BE TREATED AS A SPECIAL CATEGORY. LEGAL DEVELOPMENTS CONCERNING COLLECTIVE NEGOTIATIONS BY PUBLIC SCHOOL TEACHERS WILL BE ESPECIALLY INFLUENCED BY INDIVIDUAL AND CONCERTED ACTION OF PUBLIC SCHOOL ADMINISTRATORS AND BOARDS OF EDUCATION. THE COMPLETE DOCUMENT, "COLLECTIVE NEGOTIATIONS AND EDUCATIONAL ADMINISTRATION," IS AVAILABLE FROM THE UNIVERSITY COUNCIL FOR EDUCATIONAL ADMINISTRATION, 65 SOUTH OVAL DRIVE, COLUMBUS, OHIO 43210, AND FROM DR. ROY B. ALLEN, COLLEGE OF EDUCATION, UNIVERSITY OF ARKANSAS, FAYETTEVILLE, ARKANSAS 72701, FOR $2.50. (JK)
