Collective Bargaining in Higher Education in the United States: Conceptual Models and a Survey of Incidence Among Faculty and Supportive Professional Personnel.
Kennelly, Jean Rupp
This study (1) ascertains the incidence of collective bargaining activity involving faculty and supportive professional personnel, (2) determines the nature of the issues being negotiated, (3) extrapolates models of bargaining, and (4) analyzes and interprets relationships suggested by incidence, issues and models. Following an introductory discussion which touches upon the underlying concepts of terminological confusion, the inseparability of academic governance and collective bargaining, and individual-group imputations in bargaining, three models of bargaining--the collegial model, the managerial model, and the union model--are developed conceptually from the relevant literature. The empirical portion of the study consists of a national survey of American institutions of higher education. Survey data were gathered through a questionnaire mailed to 244 randomly selected institutions. Results indicated 29% of the respondent institutions reported collective bargaining activity in three stages. Fifteen percent reported developmental stage activity, 4% reported negotiations in progress, and 10% reported collective bargaining through the contract stage. (Author/MJM)
