Local-Cosmopolitanism and Collective Bargaining in a State College System.
Brumbaugh, Robert B.; Flango, Victor E.
The objectives of this empirical study were (1) to determine to what degree Gouldner's typology of local-cosmopolitan latent social roles would be reproduced in a survey of the 14 institutions comprising Pennsylvania's state owned college and university system, and (2) to determine whether the resulting typology would be useful in predicting the attitudes of these faculties and administrators toward Pennsylvania's recent negotiations legislation enabling the state college faculties to organize for collective bargaining. Five of Gouldner's six factors were recovered from 813 responses to a 73-item questionnaire survey mailed to a stratified random sample of faculty and administration of these 14 institutions five months prior to the statewide election for bargaining representative. The survey poll predicted the outcome of the election.
