Adjusting to Collective Bargaining. New Directions for Community Colleges, No. 11.
Ernst, Richard J., Ed.
New Directions for Community Colleges, n11 Fall 1975
The community college experience with collective bargaining is a source of valuable information about the effects of academic unionization. This sourcebook presents interpretations of collective bargaining by the major interest groups associated with the community college--faculty, college administrators, trustees, state-level administrators--and by full-time professionals who assist each of these interest groups. Discussions include: the status and probable expansion of collective bargaining among the community colleges; bargaining as a means of promoting the economic security and professional status of a faculty, and as a threat to the traditional character of the academic community; the role of college trustees, chief executive officers, department chairmen, faculty bargaining agents, management bargaining teams, and professional negotiations consultants in the collective bargaining process; statewide bargaining and an analysis of the many issues that must be considered when the adoption of collective bargaining is being contemplated. A bibliographic essay is also provided. Contributors include: Patsy Sumner, Joseph Hanklin, Daniel Schultz, Terence Florin, Fred Mathews, Curtis Murton, Jr., Stuart Steiner, James Freimuth, John Grede, Eric Rhodes, Philip Helland, Richard Ernst, and Elizabeth Rinnander.
