The Savings Clause: A Threatening Cloud.
Collective Bargaining Perspectives, v1 n8 Entire Issue 1976
Collective bargaining at public institutions of higher education has the potential for creating an atmosphere allowing political interference with academic freedom. Most contracts signed at public institutions contain a section that states that certain economic issues are subject to the approval or funding of the state legislature before they become effective - the "saving clause." The legislature is given the ability to thwart the provisions or intent of the collective bargaining agreement and exert political pressure on the institutions. (JMF)
