Faculty Bargaining. Change and Conflict.
Garbarino, Joseph W.; Aussieker, Bill
Why do the faculty of colleges and universities organize? Is faculty unionism inevitable? Is faculty unionism irreversible? What is the impact of faculty unionism? These four questions are central to this comprehensive review of experience to date with collective bargaining. Collective bargaining is viewed in the context of rapid changes in colleges and universities in the 1960's and 1970's that have threatened traditional relationships among professors, their institutions, and other sectors of society. Among the subjects discussed are traditional forms of faculty participation in institutional governance; the development, strengths, and weaknesses of some of the national organizations that now represent faculty members as bargaining agents; the changes in faculty relationships to their institutions that have occurred with the development of collective bargaining; and some of the educational, political and administrative issues that are raised by the new bargaining procedures. One chapter focuses attention on faculty bargaining at American's 2-year colleges. Another chapter reviews the British experience with collective bargaining. The author concludes, among other things, that collective bargaining will be a feature of higher education for the foreseeable future. (Author)
