Collective Bargaining: Implications for Governance.
Mortimer, Kenneth P.; Lozier, G. Gregory
The recent advance of collective bargaining into higher education is such that many colleges and universities may anticipate several changes of potentially major proportions in their decisionmaking patterns. One feature of collective bargaining is the discontent on the part of many faculties to rely on informal or noncodified procedures in matters relevant to the terms and conditions of their employment and to the provisions for faculty participation in institutional decisionmaking. As a result, collective bargaining portends to interject major changes in faculty-administration relations in higher education. The major thrust of this paper is an analysis of some of the implications that collective bargaining has or is likely to have on traditional modes of academic governance. The authors review the governance-related provisions in 31 collective bargaining contracts, and an exhaustive search of the literature has provided an extensive bibliography on the topic of collective bargaining in higher education.
