Work Stoppage Strategies. A Guide to Assist School Administrators to Develop Strike Management Plans. AASA Executive Handbook Series, Volume 6.
American Association of School Administrators, Washington, DC.
This handbook provides help and direction in minimizing the impact of a teacher strike on the local community. It is, in essence, a management plan to deal with work stoppages on as high a professional plane as possible. Modification must be made to meet local and state circumstances. Each school district must write a plan in line with its own philosophy and the board of education policies and state statutes. The point is that each school district in the nation must have such a readily available plan of action. A brief historical review of work stoppages by employee groups is included to give a greater understanding of the development of the more militant stance of school employee groups across the country. The scope and causes of strikes are also discussed, but the major portion of the handbook is devoted to what the administrative team should do before, during, and after a strike. An appendix contains a checklist on the operation of the school, a prestrike questionnaire, a school report form and a strike checklist. (Author/IRT)
