Four-Year State Colleges: The Scope of Collective Bargaining.
Kramer, Gerald H.; Creswell, John W.
Examined are the written collective bargaining agreements that existed during any part or all of the 1973-74 academic year between four-year state colleges and faculties who have chosen bargaining agents. All of the written agreements in effect at four-year state colleges, a total of fourteen covering thirty-seven institutions, were analyzed. The "scope of bargaining" is defined as the degree to which each written agreement included thirteen subjects traditionally considered in a "model" contract. Next, several research questions were posed to examine implicit assumptions held by practitioners and stated in the literature that may contribute to an extended "scope." Results showed that the type of law enacted by a state may influence the "scope of bargaining" of a written agreement. However, the type of organization representing faculty, the composition of the bargaining unit, the use of third-party intervention, and binding arbitration clauses in the agreements failed to significantly affect the content of the written agreements.
