Change from Strife to Accommodation in Organizational Behavior as Affected by Collective Bargaining: A Case Study.
Caldwell, William E.; Chichura, Andrew
This study involved the identification of factors associated with major organizational changes in public schools as affected by collective bargaining. The goal was to replicate Whyte's 1951 study of private sector organizational change to determine whether similar patterns existed in public sector organizational behavior. The study used Whyte's theoretical framework as a basis for data collection and analysis. Data for the case study were collected through personal interviews and document analysis in a single Pennsylvania public school district. Based on the theoretical framework and their data analysis, the authors developed a Public Sector Employee/Management Relationship Model, which identifies the five stages of tranquility, low conflict, high conflict, transition, and mutual accommodation. This model is similar to the three-stage model developed by Whyte in his 1951 study of a private sector organization. (Author/JG)
