Collective Barganing in Private Industry in the United States Compared to the Present Status of Collective Negotiations in Public Education.
Shils, Edward B.; Whittier, C. Taylor
Collective negotiation in education has lagged behind collective bargaining developments in private industry, which have resulted from the passage of a number of federal statutes, beginning with the NIRA Act of 1933. By contrast, state statutes for collective negotiation in education have been relatively few, recent, and inadequate. Topics considered include composition of the bargaining unit, compulsory membership, and binding arbitration. Five premises support the NEA position of professional negotiation. Eight premises support the AFT position of collective bargaining. (JK)
