Faculty Bargaining, State Government and Campus Autonomy: The Experience in Eight States. Report Number 87.
Mortimer, Kenneth P., Ed.
This monograph compiles eight papers discussing faculty collective bargaining experiences in eight different states. Part I contains articles on four states where faculty collective bargaining was in existence before 1971: Michigan, New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania. Part II includes discussions of some more recent experiences in Hawaii, Massachusetts, Alaska, and Montana. Most of the papers cover three basic topics: the nature and scope of bargaining legislation, the organization of state government and the structure for collective bargaining in the state, and the nature of systemwide-campus authority relations under collective bargaining. The data bases on which the papers rest vary considerably and are related to the amount of experience a state has had with faculty bargaining. A summary paper compares the experiences in the individual states, identifies major patterns in state-institutional and system-institutional authority relations as associated with faculty collective bargaining, and puts forward six propositions which summarize the factors that are associated with the degree of centralization that occurs under collective bargaining.
