This study examined faculty workload rules in collective bargaining agreements at the 20 largest unionized colleges and universities (all public institutions or systems) to understand if and how labor and management have negotiated faculty workload provisions. It found that in 12 of the 20 agreements, the parties negotiated specific limits on the number of courses taught. In another 4 of the 20 agreements, the parties defined workload as past practice which cannot be changed without negotiation. The remaining four agreements were silent on the matter of faculty workload. An examination of workload rules in collective bargaining agreements at the 10 largest unionized private colleges and universities found that the agreements at all 10 institutions specified specific limits upon faculty courseloads. Specific data on faculty workloads at each of the 30 institutions are included. (MDM)
