Collective Bargaining for Academic Staff: An Overview. Paper No. OIR-32.
Semeniuk, S. F.
The nature and status of collective bargaining by faculty in colleges and universities in both the United States and Canada are reviewed. The growth patterns for collective negotiation in both countries and the causal factors for faculty unions are contrasted. The use of collective bargaining in higher education raises issues, including the determination of bargaining principles; determination of who should be included in the bargaining unit definition; the effect of the principle of exclusivity of bargaining rights on the agreement; and the resolution of bargaining impasses, grievance procedures and arbitration. Contents of contracts that are specifically related to higher education are discussed including governance, personnel policies, and academic provisions for faculty responsibilities and functions.
