The most significant change appearing in the collective bargaining area in 1989 was the drop in number of cases compared to recent years. The largest number of cases challenged the specifics of fair share fee level establishment and the processes in place for collection of fees. There were also a significant number of cases surrounding issues of layoff, termination, and suspension. The review addresses the following topics at the K-12 level: (1) constitutional issues; (2) recognition and representation issues; (3) rights and obligations of exclusive bargaining representatives; (4) scope of bargaining; (5) grievability and arbitrability; (6) judicial review of arbitration awards and employment relations boards rulings; and (7) strikes and sanctions.
