A Comparison of Research Techniques Used in the Collective Bargaining Process.
Ahrens, Stephen W.
Types of research currently being used in negotiating salaries and fringe benefits for faculty are discussed. As collective bargaining becomes more widespread among public colleges and universities it is suggested that the institutional researcher will be called upon to provide research relevant to the arbitration process. Master contract language, PERB laws, need arguments, and other tools common to professional labor organizations are discussed. Examples of research techniques used by various groups, states, and countries are provided for selected boards of regents and offices of institutional research; the countries of France, Ireland, and Canada; as well as the National Educational Association, American Association of University Professors, and American Federation of Teachers. The arguments from these examples focus around need, comparability, and ability to pay. Brief narratives accompany the examples explaining the relevance of each, the assumptions upon which they are based, and the associated pitfalls. (Author/SF)
