The Current Status of Faculty Unionism in Higher Education: A Statistical Analysis.
Collinwood, Dean W.
This analysis presents a view of the current status of unionism based on statistics reported in the "Chronicle of Higher Education" and from the author's own calculations. It is shown that each year for at least three years, unions have held more elections on public and on four-year campuses than on private and two-year campuses. Each year the percentage of union wins to total election attempts has decreased. Private and four-year campuses have felt an increase in organizing attempts of 2.5 percent since 1974 but unions have felt a concomitant decrease in their ability to win on those campuses of 3.4 percent over the same period. The only category in which unions are having unchanging success is the two-year campus. It is predicted that the more unions attempt to penetrate the realm of four-year and private campuses the less will be their chances of winning. However, unions have won almost 89 percent of all contests. (Author/LBH)
