Pressure Point On Campus: Academic Program Planning and Resource Allocation in Conflict with the Bargaining Table.
Kieft, Raymond
Considered are the nature and extent of some of the basic conflicts that arise when two, future-oriented, decision-making processes--institutional program planning/resource allocation and collective bargaining--are both present on the same campus. The identified conflicts come from the experiences of a university that was one of the first in the United States to bargain collectively with its faculty (1969) and has been doing so while operating a program planning and resource allocation system. The conflict areas that are identified together with the reasons for the conflict are: (1) job security (collective barg.) vs. staffing flexibility (planning/resource allocation); (2) mandatory late retirement (collective barg.) vs. early retirement (planning/resource allocation); (3) level of faculty compensation (collective barg.) vs. allocation of resources (planning/resource allocation); (4) academic program stability (collective barg.) vs. academic program change (planning/resource allocation); (5) scope of collective bargaining agreements (collective barg.) vs. institutional mission, goals and objectives (planning/resource allocation); (6) faculty-interest-driven model (collective barg.) vs. student-interest-driven model (planning/resource allocation). Institutional research and planning staff of the university developed various strategies and responses to these conflict areas that resulted in some conflict resolution. These strategies and responses are identified and described in greater detail--Early Retirement Costing Model and The Salary Inequity Identification Model. (Author)
