Institutional Units and Campuses with Faculty Collective Bargaining Agents. Special Report #12: Update.
Kramer, Billie Willits
Information is provided on the faculty collective bargaining agents representing two- and four-year colleges. Introductory material highlights changes in bargaining arrangements taking place in 1978 and 1979, focusing on changes in agents, the practice of voluntary recognition, state legislative actions, and a U.S. Supreme Court decision regarding the status of college faculty as "professional" or "managerial" employees. Next, a listing is provided of the units represented by the American Association of University Professors (AAUP), the American Federation of Teachers (AFT), the National Education Association (NEA), independent agents, a coalition of the AAUP and AFT, a coalition of the AAUP and NEA, the American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE), and no agents. For each unit listed, information is provided on the number of campuses involved, the approximate size of the unit, the certification date, and the existence of a contract. Next, the 100 units that voted to have no agent are listed, with information on the agents on the most recent ballot and the year of the election. Then, tables provide campus and unit counts of public and private, two- and four-year colleges represented by each agent; information on the number of faculty represented by each agent; campus and unit counts of public and private, two- and four-year colleges with faculties that have contracts or are renegotiating contracts; and statistics showing the types and number of agents by state within the regions of the country.
