Collective Bargaining for Community Colleges.
Metzler, John H.
Information in this 14-chapter monograph is presented as an aid to community college trustees who are involved in labor negotiations with professional and non-professional college staff. Chapter I reviews state and federal legislation related to public sector bargaining rights.

Chapter III discusses factors to be considered in selecting an employer negotiating team. Chapter IV explicates planning considerations in preparing for negotiations. Chapter V details guidelines for conducting negotiations. Chapter VI examines communication problems in the negotiation process. Chapter VII discusses the concept of negotiability and its application to issues that are commonly addressed in a community college labor contract. Chapter VIII outlines six vital elements of the grievance procedure. Chapters IX, X, and XI discuss management planning for three progressive actions taken in the case of a negotiation impasse: mediation, fact-finding, and the strike. Chapter XII assesses the role of arbitration in contract administration, while Chapter XIII clarifies the parts of the arbitration award. Chapter XIV reviews the law regarding fair labor practices.
