The Application of Non-Discrimination Law and Regulations To Collective Bargaining in Higher Education. Special Report No. 23.
Academic Collective Bargaining Information Service, Washington, DC.
This document explores some of the interrelationships between the collective bargaining process and equal employment issues. The National Labor Relations Act, the federal collective bargaining statute, is the focal point of the labor law discussion because it has had significant impact on the drafting and interpretation of state labor legislation and stands on an equal footing with federal equal employment laws. The federal labor statute, applicable to private colleges and universities is discussed, underscoring the Act's application to discrimination in employment based on race, sex, religion, national origin or color. Next, four federal equal opportunity laws -- Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, the Equal Pay Act, Executive Order 11246 as amended, and Title IX of the 1972 Educational Amendments -- are briefly described, emphasizing their impact on labor relations matters. Finally, some suggestions for higher education collective bargaining in the context of equal employment obligations are given. To the extent possible, an attempt is made to shape the principle of law, which arises in an industrial setting, to conceptually fit a situation involving faculty organizing or collective bargaining and campus equal employment issues. Much of the discussion is applicable to both faculty and nonfaculty employees. (Author/KE)
