Confidentiality and Due Process, "Yeshivawatch," NLRB v. Yeshiva University: An Updated Bibliography, 1981 Strike Scene.
Douglas, Joel M., Ed.
National Center for the Study of Collective Bargaining in Higher Education and the Professions Newsletter, v9 n4 p1-7 Sep-Oct 1981
In four sections, this newsletter issue presents: (1) a view of the problem of confidentiality and due process in relation to the Dinnan case; (2) a report of events occurring at colleges that are related to the Yeshiva University decision; (3) updates to June 1981 bibliographic citations concerning the Yeshiva University decision; and (4) a summary of events pertaining to strikes in higher education in the 1981-82 academic year. In "Confidentiality and Due Process," Aaron Levenstein discusses his disagreement with the positions of Professor James A. Dinnan, of the University of Georgia, who refused to reveal to a federal court how he voted on the reappointment of a colleague, who alleged she was a victim of sex discrimination. Areas of disagreement pertain to Dinnan's belief that if the Personnel and Budget Committees' behavior were public they could act differently, his failure to recognize social changes, and his view that confidentiality should protect the decision-maker. Levenstein asserts that secrecy of decision-making is incompatible with due process and violates good management. In "Yeshivawatch," events occurring at nine colleges that are related to the Yeshiva University decisions are identified. An updated version of "Bibliography No. 8-9 on Collective Bargaining in Higher Education," which pertains to the Yeshiva University decision, is presented in "Yeshiva Bibliography." In "1981 Strike Scene," only four strikes were identified for the fall 1981 semester. Of the four impasses classified as work stoppages, none could be directly attributed to the Yeshiva University decision, although one private institution, Wagner College, did strike in April, 1981 over a series of Yeshiva-related issues.
