Directory of Faculty Contracts and Bargaining Agents in Institutions of Higher Education.
Garfin, Molly, Comp.; And Others
Presented is the directory of faculty contracts and bargaining agents in institutions of higher education, which as of December 31, 1980 consisted of 427 faculty unions who are certified as recognized bargaining agents, with more than 359 collective bargaining agreements in effect. Approximately 68 of these agents have either chosen not to negotiate a collective agreement or are still working toward their initial contract. The number of campuses now covered by collective bargaining agreements is in excess of 700. Sections include: an introduction that examines unionization among faculty, 1980; faculty contracts and bargaining agents, U.S.; faculty collective bargaining at Canadian universities; summary of elections, U.S.-1980; no agent votes; and statistics. Tables include: public and private institutions recognized as bargaining agents; public and private institutions which have contracts with bargaining agents; analysis of bargaining agents and collective bargaining agreements; geographic distribution of bargaining agents and contracts; and status of state collective bargaining legislation. An alphabetical list of U.S. and Canadian institutions is also provided. Among the conclusions are: 1980 must be considered as a year in which public sector higher education collective bargaining continued to grow at a stabilized annual rate while private sector bargaining lessened; New York State continues to lead the nation in terms of number of unionized colleges with 53 contracts; California remains second with 43 contracts.
