Community College Faculty Collective Bargaining: Report and Recommendations of the Advisory Committee on Community College Faculty Collective Bargaining to the Senate Select Committee.
Washington State Legislature, Olympia. Senate.
A survey of almost 6,500 community college faculty, trustees, students, presidents, and administrators was conducted to study the question of faculty relations in the Washington State community college system, with special emphasis on collective bargaining. Respondents (38 percent of the questionnaire distribution) favored including part-time faculty in the bargaining unit by a 70.6 percent margin, and department/division chairmen by a 70.2 percent margin, but were against including students by a 77 percent margin. Other results indicated: 52.2 percent of the respondents were against administrators, other than the president, being empowered to bargain independently; 64.3 percent were in favor of negotiations at the local rather than the state level; 75.3 percent were against the idea of limiting collective bargaining to the traditional economic issues of wages and hours; 54.3 percent favored both collective bargaining and internal governance. Responses were evenly divided on the advisability of a statewide salary schedule for community college faculty. Based on the survey results, a replacement of the Community College Professional Negotiations Law with a collective bargaining law designed specifically for community colleges is recommended. Bargaining should be conducted at the local level. (NHM)
