Faculty Collective Bargaining Activity in Pennsylvania. The First Five Years (1970-1975).
Gershenfeld, Walter J.; Mortimer, Kenneth P.
An in-depth investigation of the development and consequences of faculty collective bargaining used all institutions of higher education in the state of Pennsylvania that have experienced faculty collective bargaining and/or organizing activity. After a presentation of the background material and a discussion of the development and experience with faculty collective bargaining at Pennsylvania state colleges and universities, community colleges, state-related colleges, and private institutions, an analysis of the experience in various sectors is made. Discussed are patterns and variations in organizing activity; the major unit determination issues that have emerged; the scope, procedures, and major outcomes of contract negotiations; impasse resolution; approaches to contract administration; the consequences of collective bargaining for institutional governance; and the role of external authorities in collective bargaining. Findings are that the nature and consequences of faculty collective bargaining varied significantly among institutions and institutional types; and it is difficult to separate the consequences of faculty bargaining from the impact of a variety of other current forces in higher education.
