A Comparison of Working Conditions Between Community College Instructors in Collective Bargaining Contract Colleges and Traditional Colleges.
DePaoli, John A., Jr.
In order to assess the impact of collective bargaining on community college faculty working conditions, a 79-item questionnaire was sent in winter 1974 to the presidents of a random nationwide sample of 100 community colleges operating under collective bargaining contracts and 100 community colleges operating under traditional agreements. Of the 200 colleges contacted, 110 (55 percent) responded. Results indicate that mean maximum salaries in collective bargaining colleges are 21 percent higher, but that there is only a three percent difference in mean minimum salaries. There were no significant differences in working conditions (contact hours, overload teaching assignments, office hours, class size, committee responsibilities, classroom substitution, community activities, and budget development), leave provisions, promotion and tenure provisions, or general contract provisions (holidays, instructional travel, affirmative action clauses, non-strike pledges, and board freedom to alter the work force). Pertinent literature is reviewed, and the questionnaire is appended. (DC)
