Community College Board of Trustees and Negotiations with Faculty.
The major methods and strategies employed by community college negotiating teams and the role of the board are examined. Discussions are provided of the causes of the emergence of collective bargaining in higher education, what the first concern of the board should be, how the board can provide leadership, whether the faculty choice of agent is a serious concern of the board, when the board's active involvement should begin, what options the board has, whether the board can or should express its reaction, who should represent the board, how the negotiator should involve the board, and the role of the president. Then, the following subjects are examined: how the negotiator proceeds, why there is an emphasis on privacy, how negotiations begin, what negotiation actually means, what challenges arises at the bargaining table, what may be at stake at the bargaining table, whether bargaining is naturally aimed toward impasse, what to do if impasse comes, and the "game plan" of negotiations. Finally, descriptions are given of the board's role in ratification, how the board begins to live with a contract, the implication, the administration of a contract, how the negotiator can aid in implementation, the function of the grievance procedure, and whether bargaining will end all other faculty/administrative relationships.
