Avoiding and Controlling Teacher Strikes.
Neal, Richard G.
This report presents suggestions for avoiding teacher strikes and provides procedures that can be followed to minimize acrimony in the community and maintain board control over schools should a strike be executed. For example, boards should understand the roots of teacher militancy. They should provide teachers with (1) reasonable salaries and fully disclosed working conditions, (2) an advisory voice in matters affecting their profession, (3) the right to negotiate salaries and working conditions, and (4) an effective grievance procedure. Boards and teachers should agree on procedures for negotiations and for resolving impasses. If an impasse is reached, the board must maintain a defensible position. (Author/JF)
