Focus on the Part-Timer; Arbitration on a Non-Unionized Campus; Campus Negotiators--A Critical Comment.
Levenstein, Aaron, Ed.; And Others
National Center for the Study of Collective Bargaining in Higher Education and the Professions Newsletter, v8 n5 Dec 1980
Job concerns and characteristics of part-time faculty and interests concerning union representation, arbitration on a nonunionized campus and a view of campus negotiators are addressed in this newsletter issue. The issue of protection of part-timers by their union is examined, and adjunct faculty are categorized as follows: the semi-retired, those seeking full-time employment in a tight labor market, educated homemakers, and people working full-time elsewhere. Among the goals of the American Federation of Teachers is to induce the administration to limit the use of part-time faculty. Rules proposed by the union to accomplish this end are presented, including the suggestion to prohibit splintering of full-time positions to convert them into several part-time positions. Northeastern University's five-step grievance procedure that culminates in arbitration is presented to illustrate arbitration on a nonunionized campus. The dynamics of the negotiating process are examined, and it is suggested that the collective bargaining process has an underlying set of assumptions about decision-making that are generally not a part of the academic scene. News and notes of the National Center for the Study of Collective Bargaining in Higher Education and the Professions, a topical index of the National Center Newsletter for 1973-80, and references are included.
