Information on institutions engaged in academic collective bargaining with recognized bargaining units in 1982 is presented. Attention is directed to agents elected, "no-agent" elections, decertifications, strikes and legislation, and adjunct faculty bargaining units. It was found that the number of institutions conducting collective bargaining remained relatively stable. However, the addition of California State University as a unionized institution is viewed as a significant gain by bargaining proponents. The overall number of collective bargaining agreements diminished as a result of seven decertifications in the private sector that were related to the Yeshiva University case. Two-year public colleges continue to lead all institutional categories in terms of bargaining agents with 273 in that category. Among four-year institutions, no distinction can be made as to bargaining unit frequency, since there are 69 four-year private and 68 four-year public institutions with bargaining agents. Overall of the 377 agreements in existence, 314 are in the public sector. The following materials are included: listings by institutions on contracts, unit size, and dates; and a list of 200 institutions having collective bargaining agreements; and a bibliography on salary and compensation issues.
