Collective Bargaining for University Faculty in Canada.
Adell, B. L.; Carter, D. D.
In the past, collective bargaining by faculty has been primarily concerned with professional questions and academic standards rather than economic problems. It was considered unprofessional for faculty to be concerned with their economic status; however, recently the scene has changed considerably and on campuses everywhere faculty are becoming unionized to bargain for economic as well as professional and academic standards. The present document is a review of the issues surrounding collective bargaining in Canada in order to provide a basis for the subsequent, more intensive study of these issues. Part 1 of the document deals with the causal factors related to collective bargaining, including the market factors, university-government and university-society relations, relationships within the university, the growth of collective bargaining elsewhere, and the absence of legal obstacles to collective bargaining. Part 2 is concerned with the effect factors, including the scope of bargaining, the conflict of roles and abuse of power, the exclusivity of bargaining rights and its effects on the exercise of power within the university, the effects of collective bargaining on standards of performance, and methods of resolving bargaining impasses.
