[Proposed Federal Laws Covering Collective Bargaining for Public Employes.]
Heddinger, Fred M.
This paper discusses the implications and probable impact of proposed federal legislation governing collective bargaining for state and local government employees, including teachers and school administrators. The author focuses his attention on HR 8677, which would create a federal commission to regulate public employer-employee relations, and HR 77, which would place all public employees under jurisdiction of the National Labor Relations Act. Passage of either bill is unacceptable, the author feels, because it would allow a federal agency to preempt the authority of elected state and local government officials. For the public schools, such a law would cause even more damage, he argues, by unduly broadening the scope of collective negotiations and by undermining the traditional distinction in employment matters between teachers and administrative personnel.
