This report, one of an annual series, analyzes a number of crucial topics that could affect educational negotiations in New Jersey during the year. The articles cover the scope of negotiations; agency shop negotiations; when to start bargaining; contract clauses dealing with union recognition, teacher transfers, and payment for unused sick leave upon retirement; the impacts of budgetary ceilings and inflation on negotiation; the ramifications of opening schools during strikes; and leaves for maternity, pregnancy disability, and child care. An extensive analysis of the New Jersey Education Association's sample agreement for 1981-82 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)
