TEACHERS, SCHOOL BOARDS, AND COLLECTIVE BARGAINING--A CHANGING OF THE GUARD.
DOHERTY, ROBERT E.; OBERER, WALTER E.
FOUR MAJOR AREAS OF COLLECTIVE BARGAINING FOR TEACHERS, BASED ON A REVIEW OF HISTORICAL RECORDS, A COMPARISON OF EXPERIENCES, A STUDY OF RELEVANT DOCUMENTS, AND INTERVIEWS WITH PERSONNEL DIRECTLY INVOLVED ARE DEFINED AND ANALYZED--(1) FACTORS GIVING RISE TO THE BILATERAL DETERMINATION OF EMPLOYMENT CONDITIONS IN PUBLIC SCHOOLS, (2) THE CHARACTER OF THE TWO TEACHER ORGANIZATIONS BEHIND THE MOVEMENT, (3) LEGAL QUESTIONS RAISED BY COLLECTIVE ACTION AMONG TEACHERS, AND (4) IMPLICATIONS OF TEACHER BARGAINING FOR THE QUALITY OF THE EDUCATIONAL ENTERPRISE. THE INCREASING DEMAND FOR FORMALIZED EMPLOYMENT ARRANGEMENTS WITH LOCAL SCHOOL BOARDS IS DUE TO A PROPORTIONATE INCREASE IN THE NUMBER OF MALE TEACHERS, LOW SALARIES, UNSATISTACTORY WORKING CONDITIONS, THE MOUNTING FRUSTRATION OF PUBLIC SCHOOL TEACHING, AND GROWING COMPETITION BETWEEN THE TWO MAJOR TEACHER ORGANIZATIONS. SPECIAL ATTENTION IS GIVEN TO QUESTIONS CONCERNING DESIRABLE STATE LEGISLATION, INCLUDING VARIOUS ASPECTS OF REPRESENTATION, UNFAIR PRACTICES, STRIKES, SANCTIONS, NEGOTIATION AND IMPASSE PROCEDURES, AND THE ADMINISTRATION OF LEGISLATION WHEN ENACTED. A COMPARISON OF REPRESENTATIVE PROVISIONS IN TWO COMPREHENSIVE TEACHER-SCHOOL BOARD AGREEMENTS NEGOTIATED BY AFT AND NEA AFFILIATES IS APPENDED. THIS DOCUMENT IS ALSO AVAILABLE FROM DISTRIBUTION CENTER, NEW YORK STATE SCHOOL OF INDUSTRIAL AND LABOR RELATIONS, CORNELL UNIVERSITY, ITHACA, N.Y. 14850, FOR $2.00. (JK)
