Anatomy of a Collective Bargaining Election in Pennsylvania's State-Owned Colleges.
Lozier, G. Gregory; Mortimer, Kenneth P.
Following introductory material, this report examines the collective bargaining election in Pennsylvania's stateowned colleges. The second section establishes the contextual framework for the election. This section discusses certain features of the Pennsylvania State Colleges, reviews the election campaign waged by the respective contending associations, and provides a brief analysis of respondents' answers to several open-ended questions at the end of the survey instrument pertaining to the issues in the campaign. The next five sections deal with the major issues being studied: faculty characteristics, the bargaining unit, the associations, the scope of negotiations, and internal versus external governance structures as influences on voting behavior. A description of the issue and a discussion of the survey results are presented for each issue. The final section summarizes the report findings and cites several conclusions generated from these findings. (Author/MJM)
