Collective Bargaining: A View from the Presidency.
Some decisions faced by a college president making the transition into the milieu of campus unionization are described. The legal prerequisites of collective bargaining on college campuses is reviewed. Inclusion or exclusion of departmental heads as part of the bargaining unit is cited as a crucial matter, and election and negotiation procedures are discussed. Administration of the labor contract is described with reference to the agreement at Clarion State College, Pennsylvania. Suggestions are offered for biweekly Meet and Discuss sessions between administrators and union leaders, and for grievance procedures. Consideration is given to the possible effect of bargaining on faculty salaries, faculty size, teaching loads, and adversary relationships in general. The importance of labor-management cooperation is emphasized. (LBH)
