Collective Bargaining--Practices and Attitudes of School Management. Research Report 1977-2.
Newby, Kenneth A.
This report contains the results of a survey of board of education members' and school administrators' attitudes toward collective bargaining. More than 1,600 board members and administrators were questioned at the 1976 National School Boards Association convention on all aspects of collective bargaining, including how school districts negotiate, the scope of bargaining, negotiators, time required to negotiate, impasses, and terms of contracts. The survey collected opinion on the impact and future of collective bargaining, as well as on the role of superintendents, principals, and the community in the bargaining process. The results indicate that collective bargaining is the primary management concern among school district administrators and board members. The survey also shows that there is great diversity in how bargaining is conducted in different parts of the country. (Author/DS)
