Compensation for Overload and Extra Contractual Services. Collective Bargaining Perspectives Volume 2, Number 5.
Goeres, Ernest R.
Most faculty collective bargaining agreements now require supplemental compensation for the performance of any duty that is in addition to what is defined as the normal teaching load for college faculty. Virtually all agreements state very clearly what a basic faculty load is, and all other services are thus defined or designated as overload or extra-contractual, whereas many of these duties are considered part of the normal teaching load at non-union institutions. In the agreements, not only are they clearly defined by function, but the rates of pay and faculty selection procedures are also clearly expressed. Also, many agreements now contain guarantees for summer school teaching assignments, which ensure that faculty receive summer salaries (total or part), even though classes may be cancelled because of low enrollments.
