Weisberger, June M.
National Center for the Study of Collective Bargaining in Higher Education Newsletter, v10 n5 Dec 1982
Two newsletter articles are presented that examine legal aspects of campus collective bargaining: (1) "Campus Bargaining and the Law: A Decade of Higher Education Collective Bargaining--1972-1982" (June M. Weisberger); and (2) an analysis of the the Appellate Court decision in the S. Simpson Gray case. The first article examines major labor relations developments in the past decade and themes affecting higher education faculty. Attention is directed to the following five topics that contain relevant labor relations and employment law information: student participation, peer review, financial exigency, academic decision making process, and agency shop. Student participation refers to legal provisions by four states to allow student representatives a statutory role during faculty bargaining, while peer review pertains to tenure review deliberations and votes by faculty. Financial exigency has been an argument posed by some universities in the decision to lay off tenured faculty. The second article reviews the S. Simpson Gray decision, which held that Gray was entitled to be informed of the votes of two members of the collegewide Personnel and Budget Committee that denied him reappointment with tenure. (SW)
