Research Briefs, v2 n2 1991
This research brief presents data concerning collective bargaining in higher education, to indicate how much collective bargaining activity is taking place, where it is, and who the principal participants are. Information is presented on how many faculty members are represented by collective bargaining agreements; the primary organizations involved (American Association of University Professors, American Federation of Teachers, and National Education Association); collective bargaining at public institutions compared to independent institutions and four-year compared to two-year institutions; geographic concentration; satisfaction with collective bargaining; and collective bargaining and the economy. Charts and figures show number of bargaining agents and agreements from 1975 to 1989; number of collective bargaining agents by state; number of agreements, by organization and control of institution, and by organization and type of institution; and faculty represented, by bargaining agent and type of institution. Implications of the findings are discussed. Contains four end notes, seven data resources, and six references. (JDD)
