Collective Bargaining in Higher Education: An Empirical Analysis in the California State Colleges.
Haehn, James O.
College faculties have been considerably slower than their public school counterparts in joining in the collective bargaining movement. The first large scale attempt was not made until 1965. The initial campaign to organize faculty in support of collective negotiations was in the California State College system, and the little empirical research that has been done on the subject has focused on the California colleges. This paper discusses and analyzes some of the studies on collective bargaining with those of the college teachers. Although the same variables that are associated with pro bargaining sentiments among public school teachers do not appear while analyzing college teachers, there is a relationship. In both groups the upwardly mobile instructor, with some type of previous exposure to unionism and a politically liberal orientation, is the individual most likely to be among those pressing for the establishment of formal bargaining arrangements. These persons also tend to have a more "professional" commitment within their occupations. In addition, a rise in militant professionalism is apparent among both the public school and college teachers. (AF)
