A Record of the Processes Leading to Faculty Collective Bargaining at Chicago State University.
Stanton, L. Patrick
An objective record is presented of the processes that led to faculty collective bargaining at Chicago State University (CSU), based principally on the published proceedings of the Board of Governors of State Colleges and Universities of the State of Illinois. The study presents chronologically the official record of the CSU faculty-governing board relationship from April 1965, when a governance transfer of Chicago Teachers College from the City of Chicago to the State of Illinois was announced, to October 1976, when the American Federation of Teachers was elected agent for the faculty of CSU and its four sister board-governed state universities. The account of the early years leads to April 1968 and probably the nation's first strike at a four-year institution over collective bargaining. The chronology of the years following supplies a record of the events that led the Board to enter into faculty collective bargaining without enabling legislation, a first in Illinois and apparently the nation.
