Strike Manual. A Report of the Employee Relations Committee.

To help school districts develop contingency plans for teacher strikes, this guide provides background material and suggests methods for building a strike plan. Following a listing of contributors and a short introduction, there is a brief history of collective bargaining and teacher strikes. A general discussion on developing, preparing, and implementing a strike plan then precedes a lengthy description of a strike plan. Included in the strike plan are a planning committee, building security, law enforcement, utilities, supplies, insurance, communications, documentation, athletics, guidelines for building administrators, a decision-making center, board member responsibilities, and tactics to expect from teachers. Activities after a strike--involving the public, former strike leaders, and the board--are examined in the following section, and four basic rules are suggested. The use of a management crisis support team is next touched on. The guide's discussion of a communications plan includes audience analysis, message content, a communications calendar, and internal publications. Necessary data and legal requirements for injunctions are explained before a closing summary. Exhibits appended include a sample warning letter to teachers, a sample board resolution on disciplining employees, a strike checklist, and suggested reactions to "sickouts." (RW)
