Developing Trends in Faculty Unionism in Higher Education.
Collinwood, Dean W.
By December 1974, it appeared that the growth of faculty unionism in U.S. higher education had definitely begun to slow down. The 1975 turnabout, rejection rates, the nature of the resistance, and the public versus private distinction are reviewed. It is concluded that any future increase in the rate of public rejections and in the four-year college rejection figures would serve to substantiate the hypothesis that a slowing of unionization is likely. Extraneous variables, such as a sudden shift in the economy or the enactment of new National Labor Relations Board regulations, could upset the developing trends outlined here, but other factors lend substance to the statistical argument presented.
