The number of reported cases dealing with collective bargaining increased for the second consecutive year. While there was a significant amount of litigation, including one Supreme Court case, the courts relied on established precedents in deciding the many different issues confronting them. 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 board rulings; (7) impasse and fact finding; (8) strikes and sanctions; and (9) miscellaneous decisions.
