This article examines unionization among college faculty in 1994. Academic unions represented 242,221 professors in 1994, a growth of 3.2 percent over 1993, and there were 502 bargaining agents on 1,075 campuses throughout the United States. This increase can be attributed to three factors: (1) unions won 8 out of 11 collective bargaining elections in 1994; (2) existing bargaining units grew in size; and (3) three colleges are now included in the figures that were incorrectly omitted in the past. The American Association of University Professors (AAUP) represented 64,298 faculty in 62 bargaining units. The American Federation of Teachers (AFT) represented 102,917 faculty in 163 bargaining units. The National Education Association (NEA) represented 88,365 faculty in 229 bargaining units. Independent unions represented 19,552 faculty in 44 bargaining units. Two states, California and New York, account for 50 percent of all unionized faculty members. Other demographic information concerning faculty unionization is included. (MDM)
