Chapter 3 of a book on school law, this chapter focuses on 1979 cases related to collective bargaining. The author notes that, as in 1978, challenges to grievance arbitration and to the awards of arbitrators were the dominant subject of litigation, with scope of bargaining a distant second place in the list of subject areas. In addition, he has identified another theme running throughout much of the litigation: efforts by school boards to cope with fiscal crises or declining enrollments through layoffs and other cost-saving measures. Specific cases dealt with by the author include those concerning recognition of unions and representation problems, rights and obligations of exclusive bargaining representatives, scope of bargaining, grievances, judicial review of awards, impasse and dispute resolution, strikes and picketing, and public employment relations boards.
