Collective Bargaining: Its Effects on Campus Governance. Special Report No. 16.
Falcone, Michael A.
Has faculty collective bargaining really affected campus governance processes? This study answers that question by studying opinions and contracts at six representative community college campuses in upstate New York. Findings of the study indicate that collective bargaining helped to produce changes in grievance procedures, faculty participation in the decision-making process, and in policies relative to academic freedom. Changes were also noted as to opinions about tenure and promotion policies. A high percentage of faculty and administrators indicated that formal tenure policies had been established on their campuses prior to collective bargaining. A large proportion reported that after the introduction of collective bargaining a formal written policy on tenure had been established. (Author/MJM)
