Negotiating a Better Future.
Hankin, Joseph N.
This guide is intended to help community college educators prepare for collective bargaining. Chapters include: (1) Background, discussing the acceptance of collective bargaining in community colleges in half of the states; (2) Myths and Problems, examining a variety of generalizations about the collective bargaining process, institutional and employee benefits, and mutual agreement; (3) Planning and Organization for Collective Negotiations, discussing preparation for negotiations and selection of teams to represent the constituents (faculty, students, boards of trustees, administrators, the community), negotiator characteristics, unit determination and composition, bargaining scope, background documents, external and internal data, bargaining strategy and tactics, strike possibilities, shared authority, neutral parties, and other considerations; and (4) Recommendations and Guidelines. Appended material includes two tables of state statutory references and legislative status, extent of collective bargaining by state (1976), selected mandatory and permissive bargaining subjects, and nine tables of sample information to be gathered in preparation for negotiations. A bibliography of 22 titles completes the document. (LH)
