Emerging Trends in Faculty Collective Bargaining Agreements.
Andes, John O.; Goodwin, Harold I.
Studies in Management, v1 n6 Jun 1972
Major trends revealed from an analysis of 46 collective bargaining agreements are discussed. The most obvious trend involves the agent with whom college faculty affiliate, with the National Education Association and the American Federation of Teachers dominating. It is shown that the bargaining model developing in higher education is closely patterned after the public school bargaining model. Two-year colleges are the most widely involved with collective bargaining. A new pattern for college and university contracts appears to be toward state or regional agreements. The diverseness of contract items is noted, including grievance procedures, bargaining agent rights, conformity to law, teaching load, promotion, transfer, reappointment and personnel file policies, leave, life insurance, and various concerns for future negotiations. A trend missing from the higher education contracts is a statement on management rights, as well as statements on retirement, insurance, and tenure. It is shown that eligibility for faculty bargaining unit membership varies. Librarians and counselors are specifically included in most agreements, but supervisors and classified personnel are excluded in all agreements. (Author/LBH)
