This report, one of an annual series, analyzes a number of issues critical to educational negotiations in New Jersey in 1982 and reviews important bargaining tactics from the school board's perspective. The articles included deal with the scope of negotiations; the predictable aspects of the bargaining process; basic bargaining errors; the timing of negotiations; agency shop law; mediation; communicating with the public during negotiations; the effects of collective bargaining on educational quality; and teacher salary levels in New Jersey. An extensive analysis of the New Jersey Education Association's sample agreement for 1982-83 constitutes the bulk of the document. A brief bibliography identifying relevant publications and films and a list of recent court decisions affecting negotiations complete the report. (Author/PGD)
