Faculty Satisfaction with the Influence of a Union and the Administration on Aspects of Academic Jobs.
Dallinger, Judith M.; Beveridge, M. David
This study surveyed the faculty at a moderate sized Midwestern university about their job satisfaction and the influence of the faculty union and the university administration on their job satisfaction. A total of 203 of 582 full-time faculty responded to the mailed survey questionnaire. It found that faculty members were generally more satisfied with union influence on non-monetary aspects of their job than with union influence on monetary aspects. Levels of satisfaction with union and administration influence were quite similar, except that faculty were more satisfied with union than administration influence on monthly salary and representation of the faculty interest in the state legislature. Those faculty who strongly favored being represented by the union were much more satisfied with union influence than with administrative influence. Faculty as a whole tended to be more satisfied with union and administration influence on those particular aspects of their jobs with which they were most satisfied. (MDM)
