In this report on decisions made by federal and state courts during 1983 concerning collective bargaining in public elementary and secondary education, it is noted that the number of cases rose substantially from 1982. The standards according to which these cases are determined are relatively well developed and stable, but are resistant to prospective application in individual disputes. The result is that the decisions offer few guidelines to those involved in other employer-employee disputes. The topics covered in the chapter include constitutional issues related to access to employer mailing systems, the enforcement of fair share agreements, and the protection of union members from reprisal. Other topics addressed are the authority to bargain, recognition of bargaining units, the rights and obligations of bargaining representatives, the scope of bargaining, grievability and arbitrability of disputed matters, managerial prerogatives, judicial review of administrative proceedings, impasse and dispute resolution, strikes and job actions, and a number of miscellaneous issues.
