The Influence of Cooperating School Districts in Defeating the Union Whipsaw.
Through the exchange of information and the development of solidarity within the ranks of school management, administrators can defeat union whipsaw tactics, whereby a union wins large concessions from one school district and uses these gains to pressure other districts to follow suit. School districts should cooperate with each other to fend off union assaults on individual districts. The Northwest Indiana School Study Council (NWISSC) serves Indiana's northwestern school districts as a clearinghouse for information on collective bargaining. The Council provides administrators with training and education in all aspects of labor relations. It has developed a data gathering system that includes information on how area districts negotiate and the kinds of contracts and provisions that are generated. The NWISSC distributes information on strikes and noncertified employee unions, as well as on current legislation pertaining to employee relations. (Author/DS)
