Suggested Inclusions in State Legislation for Higher Education Institutions Which Wish to Name the Chief Executive Officer as Employer. Special Report No. 15.
Academic Collective Bargaining Information Service, Washington, DC.
This a staff paper in response to requests from administrators and trustees in about 11 states where legislatures are considering bills that will enable the faculties to unionize for purposes of collective bargaining. Perhaps the most important question posed by such legislation is "Who is the employer for the state, university, college, or community college?" If this question goes unanswered, the legislature often permits a state agent outside the university to be the employer. This paper is intended to offer one set of suggestions for shaping legislation that would be beneficial to trustees and others interested in the integrity and ability of institutions to govern themselves. These suggestions are based on a decision that the chief executive officer be designated as the employer representing the government, with the board of governors acting as the administrative board for purposes of collective bargaining and in other educational matters. Included in the pamphlet are sections covering: statement of policy, definitions, public employees' relations board, determination of representation status, resolution of disputes, elections, unions, management rights, and student rights.
