Proceedings of New York University. Twenty-Seventh Annual Conference on Labor.
Management and labor are concerned with affirmative action, Title VII, and new roles that they are being forced to play by the federal government. Employers want the employees to be more productive. Unions want the workers to enjoy what they are doing and receive a good wage. The government tells management that employees must be happy, healthy, and safe in their places of employment. These and similar concerns have forced labor and management to consider both new issues at the bargaining table and new approaches to get these demands across to the other party. While many other issues are important at the bargaining table, wages and inflationary effects on wages have top priority. Substituting binding arbitration as the final step of the negotiation process for the traditional weapons of the strike and lockout is also of interest. In higher education, bargaining is perhaps the wrong way to meet the new faculty perceptions, for it does create an employer-employee relationship and thus an adversary process. Perhaps faculty and administrations will jointly agree that the costs of bargaining under the industrial model are too great and that some other scheme is desirable. (Author/KE)
