DETERMINATION OF BARGAINING UNITS AND ELECTION PROCEDURES IN PUBLIC SCHOOL TEACHER REPRESENTATION ELECTIONS.
DOHERTY, ROBERT E.
TWO CRITICAL ISSUES RELATED TO COLLECTIVE NEGOTIATIONS FOR TEACHERS ARE THE DETERMINATION OF WHO SHALL BE INCLUDED IN THE BARGAINING UNIT AND WHAT RULES SHOULD BE FOLLOWED IN THE ACTUAL ELECTION OF ASSOCIATION OR FEDERATION REPRESENTATION. ONLY SIX STATES--CALIFORNIA, CONNECTICUT, MICHIGAN, OREGON, WASHINGTON, AND WISCONSIN--HAD ENACTED LEGISLATION BY 1965 WHICH IN VARYING DEGREES DEFINED UNIT DETERMINATION AND ELECTION PROCEDURES. IN FOUR SPECIFIC INSTANCES THIRD PARTIES HAVE SERVED AS NEUTRAL MODERATORS TO SUGGEST HOW THE NEGOTIATING PARTIES SHOULD PROCEED WITH RESPECT TO THESE TWO ISSUES, INCLUDING PLACE OF POLLING, METHOD OF BALLOTING, NUMBER OF POLLING PLACES, DETERMINATION OF ELECTION WINNER, AND POST-ELECTION BAR RULE FOR REPETITIONING BY THE LOSING ORGANIZATION. QUOTED VERBATIM ARE ADVISORY REPORTS SUBMITTED BY MODERATORS TO THE BOARDS OF EDUCATION AND ARBITRATION LEADERS FOR THE CITIES OF NEW ROCHELLE, ROCHESTER, NEWARK, AND PHILADELPHIA.
