Leslie, David W.
This study compares the manner in which employment relations problems are resolved at institutions with collective bargaining contracts and those without such contracts. It also describes how collectively bargained agreements in general have resulted in the development of more formal conflict-resolution mechanisms in all sectors of higher education. An analysis and descriptive summary of grievance procedures at contract and noncontract institutions is provided. It is concluded that the reliance on formal authority is greater and grievance procedures more frequent in collective bargaining situations than in nonbargaining situations; however the trend is for the broader rules of public labor relations to move through all sectors of the higher education community. The need is underscored for continuing study of different approaches to managing employment relations conflicts. Both contracting and noncontracting institutions are urged to keep thorough records of all bargaining efforts so that longitudinal studies can be performed to provide a basis for a completely systematic analysis that is not possible at the present time.
