This report discusses teacher organizing, strikes, collective bargaining and negotiations, contract settlements, economic issues, legal developments, and state legislative activities. The first section contains fact sheets and organizing literature from the National Education Association (NEA) and the American Federation of Teachers (AFT). A tabulation of almost 150 strikes in 18 states lists the school districts by state, the number of teachers affected and their union, the number of pupils affected, the strike date, the settlement date, and the issues. A study by the Rand Corporation that focuses on recent trends in teacher collective bargaining with emphasis on key gains by teachers in areas other than salaries and fringe benefits is summarized. The 1979-80 contract settlements between teachers and school boards in ten of the largest school systems in the country are reported. An entire section is devoted to economic issues. Rulings by state courts, state employment relations boards, and labor arbitrators during 1978-80 are cited by topic. The final section presents highlights of new statutes or amendments to existing laws affecting teachers' labor relations that were enacted by 15 states during the past year. (Author/MLF)
