Results of a survey of college faculty elections concerning faculty unionization conducted from 1965 through 1990 are presented. Election results were obtained from the National Center for the Study of Collective Bargaining in Higher Education and the profession directories. Survey results include: (1) bargaining agents were successful in 75% of faculty representation elections and faculty agents were elected in 75% of the 607 elections held; (2) the majority of elections took place in two-year public institutions and occurred in the first decade of academic collective bargaining, 1965-1974; (3) election frequency was 26 per year for the period 1965-1974 and 28 per year during 1975-1984, declining to 11 per year for the years 1985-1990; (4) "No-Agent" was the preferred choice in 151 of the 607 elections reported and 32 of these elections in which faculty rejected unionizations involved more than one bargaining agent on the ballot.
