Resources for Shaping Collective Bargaining Laws to Meet the Special Needs of Higher Education. Special Report No. 18.
Academic Collective Bargaining Information Service, Washington, DC.
At least 10 additional states, as of Febraury 1975, and the Congress of the United States are shaping bills that, should they become law, will enable teachers and other professionals employed by public colleges and universities to utilize collective bargaining as an instrument for determining wages, hours, and other conditions of employment. Many of the legislators who helped to shape the existing 22 state collective bargaining laws gave little consideration to the special nature of the university and how academic collective bargaining may affect the character and quality of higher education. The effects of bargaining on higher education have now become a primary concern of trustees, students, and educators. For those who have the opportunity to shape new or amend old legislation this list of resources is offered as only a selected sample of agencies, organizations, and institutions where considerable time and effort have been expended in analyzing this concern.
