Lovell, Ned B.; And Others
An analysis is provided of the status of collective bargaining in Illinois community colleges in 1983-84. Chapter 1 provides introductory material on: the Illinois Educational Labor Relations Act (H.B. 1530), a comprehensive collective bargaining law; the value of an examination of collective bargaining prior to the implementation of the law; and the purposes and procedures of the study. Using data provided by the 21 colleges in Illinois that engaged in formal faculty bargaining in 1983-84, chapter 2 outlines common characteristics of community college contract, focusing on bargaining status, organizational affiliation, length of contract, reopener clauses, part-time faculty status, unit membership, academic year calendar, class size limits, teaching load provisions, academic freedom, office hours, insurance, retirement, tuition waiver and reimbursement provisions, leaves, sick leave, dues deduction, personnel file clause, grievance definition and resolution, impasse procedures, management rights clauses, no-strike provisions, use of private attorneys, and significant or unusual contract items. Chapter 3 presents respondents' answers to questions concerning the estimated impact of H.B. 1530 on faculty contracts, instructional quality, college finances, and faculty/administrator interaction and their suggestions concerning amendments to H.B. 1530. Finally, chapter 4 discusses the implications of H.B. 1530 for collective bargaining and bureaucratization. (HB)
