Two-Year College Contract Data--Observations.
National Center for the Study of Collective Bargaining in Higher Education Newsletter, v4 n3 May-Jun 1976
This newsletter contains two articles of interest to two-year college educators. The first details an examination of 83 public two-year college collective bargaining contracts and 41 public and private four-year college agreements for references to classroom visitations. Such references were found in 24 (29%) of the two-year college contracts and in 6 of the 20 (30%) public four-year college contracts. Personal and instructional improvement were the primary reasons given in the contracts for teacher observations. The accompanying charts indicate the prevalence of such clauses in contracts negotiated by various agents, such as the American Federation of Teachers, and in the East, West, and Midwest. The second article examines locations where faculties have voted for "No Agent" in bargaining elections. Two-year college faculties have voted for a bargaining agent in 9 out of 10 elections while four-year college faculties have voted for bargaining agents only two-thirds of the time. In the 212 two-year college elections conducted through June 15, 1976, 13 of the 15 (87%) private two-year colleges selected agents and 187 (95%) of the public two-year colleges chose agents. Charts are included showing the specifics of the 69 two- and four-year college elections where faculties failed to support a bargaining agent. (Author/MJS)
