College Faculty as "Managerial Employees": Implications of the Yeshiva University Decision for Faculty Unionization. ASHE Annual Meeting 1979 Paper.
Lee, Barbara A.
The Yeshiva University court decision is examined, in which the faculty was included with administrators as managers of the university, negating any right of the faculty to unionize. The decision is discussed in light of research on the decision-making process at colleges and universities and the roles of professionals in these institutions. The criteria used by the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) to assess the status of faculty as supervisors, managers, or professional employees are applied to the activities of faculty members in the academic decision-making process. The refusal of the NLRB to promulgate rules that would clarify faculty employee status is criticized, and suggestions for resolving the uncertainty created by the Board's adjudication process are offered.
