Professors and Unions: A Study of Collective Bargaining in the Academic Profession.
Smart, John C.
The distinctive educational and occupational characteristics of postsecondary faculty affiliated with the American Association of University Professors, American Federation of Teachers, and National Education Association, and their colleagues not affiliated with a collective bargaining representative are examined. The sample consists of 53,029 faculty who responded to a national survey of postsecondary faculty conducted by the American Council on Education. The results of a stepwise, multiple discriminant analysis are used to indicate the likely position of each group on issues that could be included in collective bargaining agreements and the relative strength of each collective bargaining representative in the five types of postsecondary institutions proposed by the Carnegie Commission.
