Governance: Senates and Unions.
Polishook, Irwin H.; Naples, Caesar J.
Newsletter of the National Center for the Study of Collective Bargaining in Higher Education and the Professions, v17 n3 Sep-Oct 1989
Edited versions of two conference papers are presented. The first paper, "The Debate Over Academic Unions and Faculty Governance," by Irwin H. Polishook, discusses why the concept of collective bargaining continues to be a significant issue in academe and is considered to be incompatible with faculty governance. It examines the union experiences at the City University of New York and Fordham University, the American Association of University Professors' perspective, and the shared governance issue arising in the 1980 Yeshiva University litigation (National Labor Relations Board vs. Yeshiva University). The second paper, "Senates and Unions," by Caesar J. Naples, addresses early predictions that the advent of collective bargaining meant the end of faculty governance. It covers the concept and reality of shared governance, particularly in the California model and in the evolution of the California State University tripartite process of governance. The two papers contain 12 references. (MSE)
