Collective Bargaining and the Community College: A Process Model for Management Teams.
Langan, Alfred "Bud"; And Others
The model presented in this monograph was designed to aid state and district school systems and college administrators in dealing with the challenge of faculty collective bargaining in Washington community colleges. First, Chapter 1 provides a historical analysis of the laws and statutes relating to negotiations in the state's community colleges. Chapter 2 presents an inventory of the contents and range of language in current negotiated agreements in Washington colleges. This chapter covers the bargaining status of the colleges, organizational affiliation of faculty, contract length, re-opener clauses, bargaining unit membership, school calendar, length of work day, teaching load, academic freedom provisions, dues deduction, grievance procedures, no-strike and management rights clauses, and the effects of the agreement. Chapter 3 describes the Contract Item Analysis (CIA), which can be used in the collective bargaining process to analyze the current contract, analyze teacher proposals, develop alternative language for management, develop counter proposals, and react to union language during negotiations. Several examples of the application of the CIA are provided. Chapter 4 delineates a process model for management to follow in negotiations and specifies the different stages and levels of its implementation. Chapter 5 makes recommendations for strike planning if negotiation fails. A glossary of collective bargaining terms is appended. (HB)
