Collective Bargaining and Discrimination Issues in Higher Education. Special Report #23.
Polowy, Carolyn I.
The increased intensity of antidiscrimination enforcement measures has caused colleges and universities to reassess their operational procedures affecting students and employees. In recent months it has become clear that the powerful forces of antidiscrimination and collective bargaining intersect at a number of critical points that need clarification, understanding, and a deep desire to find equitable solutions to the legitimate concerns of each party. This document lists suggestions for handling problems that may arise during the several phases of collective bargaining. Listed are suggestions concerning: (1) election campaigns; (2) current policies and practices; (3) membership on bargaining; (4) "good faith bargaining"; (5) preamble to the contract; (6) appointments, tenure, and promotion; (7) college calendar; (8) grievance procedures; (9) leaves of absence and health benefits; (10) nondiscrimination clauses; (11) general working conditions; (12) part-time faculty; (13) past practices or benefits; (14) personnel committees; (15) personnel files; (16) "recognition of agent"; (17) retirement of agent; (18) retirement plans; (19) retrenchment; (20) salary schedules, merit salary increases, promotion, etc.; (21) affirmative action plan note in contract; (22) fair representation; (23) picketing and strikes; (24) grievance procedures; (25) liability of employer; (26) illegal contract provision.
