The collective negotiation process between professional teachers organizations and school systems is fast becoming a full time job. Many school districts employ professional negotiations specialists to handle bargaining on behalf of school boards. To obtain an idea of current practices in assigning the function of chief negotiator, the Educational Research Service sent a questionnaire to 128 school systems (over 50,000 pupils) known to have negotiated agreements with teachers. Results of this survey indicate a variety of qualifications, titles, functions, responsibilities, and salaries assigned to professional negotiators. Job descriptions from seven school districts employing full time negotiators are included. (RA)
