Faculty Grievance Arbitration in Higher Education: Living with Collective Bargaining. IPE Monograph No. 5.
Institute of Public Employment Monograph, n5 Jan 1976
Faculty collective bargaining is a recent development on the campuses of four-year colleges and universities. The factors that stimulated this development are outlined in this study as are some of the special problems generated by faculty bargaining, especially determination of the bargaining unit and the appropriate scope of negotiations. Some general observations on faculty grievance arbitration, the City University of New York (CUNY) experience, the State University of New York (SUNY) experience, and the Pennsylvania State Colleges experience are presented to see whether there are any common approaches or patterns to the arbitration awards and collective bargaining agreements. The relation between the courts and higher education grievance arbitration is outlined as being based on decisions originating in the private sector. Several cases are cited as establishing precedents in the area of grievance arbitration. Patterns and problems in the grievance arbitration and collective bargaining practices that are unique to higher education are presented and some generalizations for the future development of procedures are made.
