Directory of Faculty Contracts and Bargaining Agents in Institutions of Higher Education. Volume 8.
Douglas, Joel M.; Kramer, Steven
Statistical data on U.S. and Canadian college faculty contracts and bargaining agents are presented. Within each state, information is presented for selected colleges on: the bargaining agent, unit size, the year current agent was elected, year the initial contract was signed, 2-year or 4-year college status, number of campuses, contract expiration data, and whether the schools have exercised a claim similar to the Yeshiva case. Similar information is provided for Canadian universities, as well as on special plan bargaining (i.e., faculty association and board of governors engage in bargaining outside the scope of labor legislation). Summary information for 1981 elections in the United States and on no-agent votes is presented. Statistical tables and bar graphs illustrate the total number of recognized bargaining agents and the number of contracts with bargaining agents in the United States. Information is presented on: the growth of unionization in the public and private college sectors, 1974-1981 and the growth of unionization in 2-year and 4-year institutions, 1979-1981; recognized bargaining agents and number of contracts for 2-year institutions and 4-year and professional schools, January 1982; distribution by state of bargaining agents and contracts for 2-year and 4-year colleges; and the date of collective bargaining legislation or an amendment by state. An alphabetical list of U.S. and Canadian institutions is appended. (SW)
