Collective Bargaining: Impact on Governance.
Duryea, E. D.; Needy, John C.
Association of Governing Boards of Universities and Colleges
For colleges and universities, faculty unionism has evidenced the potential to change significantly the nature of institutional relationships. Collective bargaining has brought into the system a different philosophy than the traditional scholarly one of shared authority. As a result, collective bargaining has created a new dimension for governing boards in the management of their institutions, and unionism must enter, explicitly and implicitly, into the deliberations of trustees. It is important, however, that boards place unionism in the perspective of other developments affecting the governance of colleges and universities, since it is one of a number of influences that impact on the corporate authority of governing boards.
