Public School Negotiations: A Complete Guide to Collective Bargaining in Pennsylvania Public Education.
Pennsylvania School Boards Association, New Cumberland.
Few laws enacted by the Pennsylvania General Assembly have been more profoundly felt than Act 195 of 1970, which granted teachers and other public employees the right to bargain and to strike. In July 1992, after years of disruptive teacher strikes, a school strike reform bill was passed in the form of Act 88. This resource book presents a historical overview of collective-bargaining rights in Pennsylvania public education, an article-by-article review of both Act 88 and Act 195, the responsibilities and regulations of state agencies, impasse procedures under Act 88, and suggestions for preparing for successful negotiations. Appendices contain the texts of Act 88 of 1992, Act 195 of 1970, and Act 84 of 1988; sample forms used by the Bureau of Mediation and the Pennsylvania Labor Relations Board (PLRB); a schedule of rate and costs adopted by PLRB; mediation resources; and a glossary.
