This report, one of an annual series, analyzes New Jersey school labor negotiations laws and practices as of 1980 from the school board's perspective. This edition of the report is not as comprehensive as earlier issues, since the issuing agency has developed other publications to treat some aspects of negotiation. The topics remaining are new to this series or are updates necessitated by legal developments. The articles included in this report deal with the scope of negotiations; employee grievances; the negotiation of effective grievance procedures; the analysis of contract clauses concerning sabbatical leaves, tuition reimbursement to teachers attending college, and personal leave; the relationship between management rights and the law as interpreted by the New Jersey Public Employment Relations Commission; the use of professional negotiators; the role of supervisors in negotiations; and the nature of employee relations in the context of labor agreements. An extensive analysis of the New Jersey Education Association's sample agreement for 1980-81 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)
