The Collective Bargaining Movement in Higher Education: A Chronological Analysis and Review of the Factors, Consequences and Trends, 1961-1977.
Rabinoff, Marc A.
A review of 30 studies concerned with the possible factors, consequences, and trends of the collective bargaining movement in higher education is presented. Three general factors are revealed as being instrumental in influencing faculties in the collective bargaining movement in higher education: financial factors, governance factors, and job security factors. Other factors noted in the literature include the political views of the faculty and self-interest and philosophical beliefs of faculty about unionism. Viewpoints concerning the possible consequences of collective bargaining in higher education ranged from the potentially positive features of collective bargaining to the seriously detrimental effects of unionism on the structure, governance, salaries, and future of our existing institutions of higher education. A definite trend towards faculty unionization in higher education was observed, especially from 1969 to 1975. A chronological analysis of the collective bargaining movement in higher education from 1961 to 1977 is provided. (SPG)
