"Market Forces/Market Equity": Provisions in Faculty Contracts.
Douglas, Joel M., Ed.
Newsletter of the National Center for the Study of Collective Bargaining in Higher Education and the Professions, v13 n4 Sep-Oct 1985
The impact of market forces on negotiated salary guides for the hiring and retention of faculty was investigated through a survey of the collective bargaining agreements of four-year institutions. While the vast majority of the 117 contracts surveyed were silent on this issue, 16 agreements contained provisions. Fifteen provided for specific programs, while one contract referred the question to a joint study committee. Of the 15 contracts, 14 utilized the concept of salary adjustments for the purposes of retaining faculty, while 7 used it for hiring new faculty. The positions of the union and the college administration are summarized, along with the negotiated response by unionized institutions. Applicable clauses are presented from each of the 15 contracts of the following institutions: California State University, Minnesota State University System, University of Minnesota, Vermont State Colleges, Delaware State College, University of Delaware, Rio Grande College, University of Dubuque, Saginaw Valley State College, Ferris State College, Rider College, Boston University, Western Montana College, Eastern Montana College, University of Montana, and City University of New York.
