Academic Collective Bargaining: Through the Illinois Looking Glass.
Eibl, John F.
In spite of its colorful history of labor organizing efforts, Illinois has been slow to respond to conditions in higher education that have led to academic collective bargaining nationally. The time has arrived for Illinois leadership to recognize the symptoms and to respond to the issues before higher education is swept into retaliatory collective organizing behavior. Professional educators need to work toward increasingly mutual trust, professionalism and reduction of alienation among themselves. Collective articulation of individual campus goals and objectives must be completed to successfully influence those responsible for statewide governance of higher education. Educators must identify factors that distinguish higher education from public school education to protect the individuality of each district system. Reduction of the ambiguity of leadership and institution of meaningful accountability is essential to deal with the complexities of current societal and educational conditions. Governing boards, the Governor, and legislators must clarify their relationship with one another, with statewide educators, and with the citizens of Illinois. (Author)
