Collective Bargaining: A View from the Faculty. Orientation Paper No. 7.
Dubeck, Leroy W.
In the spring of 1971, the Temple University faculty indicated its intention to adopt collective bargaining. The American Association of University Professors (AAUP) won the election in 1972 to be the faculty bargaining representative. One of the first issues that faced the faculty was to reorganize the structure of its AAUP chapter along lines more suitable to its role as collective bargaining agent. A revised constitution was adopted in May 1974. Particular features of the contract were: (1) that outside arbitrators are not utilized; and (2) that a discussion session is held each semester. Implementing the contract involved a great deal of cooperation between Temple University administration and the AAUP. The AAUP contract has proven an invaluable tool to resolve problems. Evidence indicates that there is a better working relationship at Temple between the administration and AAUP than exists at many other institutions under collective bargaining. (Author/KE)
