Prohibited Practices in Collective Bargaining in Public Education.
This paper outlines prohibited practices in collective bargaining when they take place in public education. After discussing rights of public employees as they parallel the language of the National Labor Relations Act, the paper goes indepth into five practices generally prohibited by state law: (1) domination of and interference with employee rights, (2) restraint or coercion of employees who wish to form or join a union, (3) refusal to bargain in good faith, (4) employee strikes, and (5) unfair labor practice by unions. The paper states that collective bargaining in public education can be satisfactorily regulated under private sector concepts. A case-by-case decisionmaking approach to unlawful practices, it says, is superior to a rigid, legislative listing of specific prohibited practices. (Author/LD)
