Understanding Faculty Unions and Collective Bargaining.
Kemerer, Frank R.
Faculty unionization in private schools and colleges poses a problem for already harried independent school administrators. The selection of a union, the end product of a series of difficulties, is a reaction to a situation that might have been altered had school administrators understood how unions come into being. This guide is intended to help administrators understand what a union is and the factors that promote its development. Included is a discussion of ways in which administrators can lessen the appeal of a union to faculty members. One section identifies the positive and negative consequences of unions, and one of four appendices provides information in question/answer form for those schools now negotiating with faculty unions. One appendix outlines a sample personnel policy, another is a glossary of labor terms, and the last is an annotated bibliography. (Author)
