Collective Bargaining; Professional Negotiations.
Washington State Legislature, Olympia. Joint Committee on Higher Education.
The Joint Committee on Higher Education had as its mandate in this particular instance to reconcile the differences of procedures and rights relating to professional negotiations or collective bargaining between faculties of the various institutions of higher education within the state of Washington, and to conclude the study of the Professional Negotiations Act for community colleges. Thus, the Joint Committee recommends that: (1) the boards of regents and trustees of state universities and colleges may in the exercise of their discretion adopt rules to authorize and govern collective bargaining between such state colleges and universities and their faculties after being requested to do so by a majority of members of their respective faculties; (2) the Community College Professional Negotiations Act should be amended by procedural changes to increase its workability; and (3) the decision to implement a state-wide salary schedule for community colleges should be deferred until the legislature makes a determination on the continued operations of the community college system under the Professional Negotiations Act.
