Cooper, Elizabeth; And Others
In 1980-81, one issue dominated labor relations in elementary and secondary education--layoffs. In the future, unions are expected to protest layoffs more and more, at the bargaining table, on the picket line, and in the courts. This report highlights this issue in its section on major developments. The two major teacher unions--American Federation of Teachers and National Education Association--are currently reviewing their roles in the light of huge cuts in federal funding for education and the prospect of the loss of cabinet rank for the Education Department. Included in this report are exclusive interviews with the top officials of both unions and extensive organizing literature for both unions. In addition the report contains a discussion of the issues involved in collective bargaining and negotiations, salary disputes, and legal developments in 1980-81 at both the state and federal court levels. The report contains a summary of the most significant contract settlements negotiated during that time and a listing of strikes that occurred in that academic year. Also included are a complete analysis of state legislative developments and a table of cases. (Author/JM)
