Labor-Management Cooperation in Public Education.
Dialogue: A Review of Labor-Management Cooperation in Public Education, v1 n1 Spr 1984
"Dialogue" is a review of labor-management cooperation in public education, whose goal is to provide teachers, administrators, school boards, and labor relations practitioners with analyses of critical issues, information about current projects, reviews of relevant literature, and a variety of special features. Each issue is generally devoted to a single theme. This first issue provides a rationale for labor-management cooperation in public education, showing how labor-management committees might augment the collective bargaining process in two areas where collective bargaining has traditionally operated alone: labor relations and economic needs. The discussion also focuses on the benefits of cooperation between labor and management to the public image of the school district. Other areas where labor-management committees can be of service include inservice education, the development of innovative programs and practices, determination of school policy, and upgrading of teacher morale. The remainder of the issue provides guidelines for establishing a labor-management committee, along with lists of advantages and barriers to labor-management cooperation and strategies for overcoming the barriers. Three books of interest are briefly reviewed at the end. (TE)
