Governance in Institutions with Faculty Unions: Six Case Studies.
Mortimer, Kenneth P.; Richardson, Richard C. Jr.
Chronicled and analyzed are the experiences of two community colleges and four comprehensive state colleges in two different states where the faculty has chosen to unionize. The case studies are based on field visits and studies of contracts and other relevant documents. Reported on are such questions as: What conditions led the faculty to unionize?; What were the dynamics of contract negotiations and administration?; What are the general impact of collective bargaining on the various participants in college governance and on the tenor of governance relationships? An introduction summarizes the current status of collective bargaining in postsecondary education, reviews the literature on the impact of collective bargaining, and discusses the administrative traditions of community and comprehensive state colleges.
