New court decisions that have claims like the "NLRB v. Yeshiva" case are considered. Excerpts of four cases that have filed Yeshiva-related claims are provided: University of New Haven, Polytechnic Institute of New York, Boston University, and Cooper Union. These four decisions have been characterized as significant defeats for proponents of private sector faculty unionism. Legal approaches taken by faculty unions (i.e., the attempts to distinguish the instant case from the original Yeshiva decision), have proven unsuccessful. The faculty members find themselves classified as managers within the definition of the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA); yet their decisions are mostly advisory and not binding on the administration. Without the protection of the NLRA, the administration is in a position to deal with faculty members individually, thereby providing opportunities for skewing of salaries and promotion in popular departments. A table is included that summarizes 42 "Yeshiva" claims acted upon through September 1984. (SW)
