Collective Bargaining in California Public Education. SB 160--The Rodda Act.
Hinman, Felicitas, Ed.
This collection of papers examines different aspects of California's Rodda Act (Senate Bill 160), which went into effect in 1976. The act is intended to improve employer-employee relations and personnel management in California public schools and community colleges. This collective bargaining law, which replaces the Winton Act, provides for (1) the creation of an Educational Employment Relations Board; (2) exclusive recognition of a single employee union representing both teachers and classified staff; (3) good faith negotiations, including support of the act's impasse procedures; (4) the arbitration of grievances; (5) the explicit definition of mandatory subjects of negotiations, consultative areas for teachers, and reserved rights of management; and (6) recognition of mediation by both sides. The papers in this collection reflect mixed reactions, but uniformly indicate that it is too early yet to know how the law will actually function. Individual papers include an analysis of the statute, an outline of the national experience with collective bargaining, and the viewpoints of employers, employees, and the public of the Rodda Act. A glossary of terms and the text of the act are also included. (Author/DS)
