State Involvement in Education Labor Relations: A Report on Four States.
The discussion in this report focuses on the state-level structures and processes for the administration of teacher bargaining in four very different states: New York, Minnesota, California, and Kansas. Sections on each state are based on interviews with personnel in state labor relations agencies or boards. Each state's structure is described and the process for implementing the law is discussed with an emphasis on representation procedures, impasse resolution, and unfair practice charges. Brief conclusions follow. Appendices include a "model report" for state labor relations agencies to consider as a format for reporting data, and paper number 31 of the Education Commission of the States (ECS) Center for Education Finance and Law entitled "Administrative Agencies: Issues and Problems in Public Education Collective Bargaining." The latter paper is a discussion, based on a literature review, of administrative agency behaviors and includes a description of several models of behavior. It is available separately from ECS.
