Teacher Unions, the Courts, and Catholics Schools.
Augenstein, John J.
This paper discusses the effects of teacher organizing and the impact of a Supreme Court decision concerning the jurisdiction of the National Labor Relations Board in Catholic schools. First, the paper examines the results of a 1979 national survey of Catholic school superintendents and teacher organization heads. The purpose of the survey was to determine attitudes toward and the present status of teacher organizations. The results showed a steady growth in the number of teacher organizations and consensus for establishment of a third party to settle disputes. An analysis of the 1979 Supreme Court decision concluded that church-operated schools do not fall under the jurisdiction of the National Labor Relations Board. The paper concludes that agreement must be reached by both administrators and teachers on the overall mission of the church, its educational mission, and the place of the school within that mission. Further, models must be developed to take the place of a third party in labor disputes. (Author/LD)
