Faculty Bargaining: A Conceptual Discussion. Final Report.
Begin, James P.
The purpose of this research is to set out a conceptual framework for explaining variations in the impact of faculty bargaining on institutions of higher education. The conceptual framework is presented in 3 parts. First, a model of the bargaining exchange process is sketched out. Second, an input model describing the structures, processes and behavioral relationships (independent variables) affecting the operation of the bargaining exchange process is developed. Third, an output model identifying the expected consequences of faculty bargaining (dependent variables) is presented. While faculty organizations are likely to have important effects on institutions of higher education, the framework developed illustrates that generalizations concerning the extent of the impact of faculty bargaining are extremely hazardous without determining the way in which forces internal and external to a particular system operate through the bargaining system parameters to produce differential collective bargaining effects.
