COLLECTIVE NEGOTIATIONS, A NEW OUTLOOK IN 1966.
HART, JERRY
BY THE END OF 1966, OVER 1500 WRITTEN AGREEMENTS HAD BEEN REACHED IN THE UNITED STATES PROVIDING FOR DECISION-MAKING BY TEACHERS THROUGH PROFESSIONAL NEGOTIATION. PRIMARY ISSUES INCLUDED THE IMPORTANCE OF STATE LEGISLATION, THE ROLE OF THE SCHOOL SUPERINTENDENT IN THE NEGOTIATION PROCESS, THE EXCLUSIVE NEGOTIATION RIGHTS BY ONE PROFESSIONAL ASSOCIATION FOR ALL TEACHERS IN A SYSTEM, THE RESOLVING OF IMPASSES, AND PERSONNEL POLICIES. THE NATIONAL EDUCATION ASSOCIATION HAS EMPHASIZED THE ENACTMENT OF STATE LEGISLATION MANDATING COLLECTIVE NEGOTIATIONS. COMPREHENSIVE STATUTES ENACTED BY CONNECTICUT AND WASHINGTON SERVE AS MODELS, CLARIFYING NEGOTIABLE ITEMS AND PROVIDING FOR IMPASSE RESOLUTION BY MEANS OF EDUCATION CHANNELS. WITH ITS MEMBERSHIP CENTERED IN NINE OF THE NATION'S TEN LARGEST CITIES, THE AMERICAN FEDERATION OF TEACHERS HAS STRESSED LOCAL CONTRACT AGREEMENTS AND UTILIZATION OF PROFESSIONAL HELP FROM THE AFL-CIO. PROVISIONS FOR TEACHER COLLECTIVE NEGOTIATION IN MICHIGAN, WISCONSIN, AND CONNECTICUT ARE OUTLINED AS MODELS FOR FUTURE LEGISLATION THROUGHOUT THE NATION. THIS ARTICLE IS PUBLISHED IN "PERSONNEL ADMINISTRATION RESEARCH STUDIES, 1966," AVAILABLE FROM THE CENTER FOR EDUCATIONAL RESEARCH AND SERVICE, COLLEGE OF EDUCATION, OHIO UNIVERSITY, ATHENS, OHIO 45701, FOR $1.00.
