Teachers' Attitudes Toward the Use of Strikes, Mass Resignations, Arbitrators, and So On.
Fris, Joe
The research reported here, on teacher contract negotiations, was conducted in response to the observation that teachers' bargaining agents are frequently uncertain about the aspirations, goals, and commitments of those they represent. It describes a short questionnaire that may be used in teacher contract negotiations to assess what the participants want to negotiate and how much support they would give to various bargaining tactics. In addition, the paper describes the results of the questionnaire distributed among members of teachers' associations in Ontario and Alberta, Canada. Part 1 describes the negotiating tactics that are at the heart of the instrument, primarily reliance on coercion or force. Part 2 describes the attitudes of a sample of teachers in regard to those tactics. Part 3 describes to what extent the attitudes of teachers varied with different contractual matters at stake. Finally, part 4 examines how teachers tend to group the tactics in terms of the different effects they are seen to have. (Author)
