Hurd, Richard; And Others
This Directory details unionization activities among college and university faculty in 1995 in the United States and Canada. It indicates that the number of professors represented by academic unions has increased 1.65 percent from the previous year, with 434 bargaining agents on 1,022 public sector campuses and 70 bargaining agents on 98 private colleges and universities. It also discusses the six collective bargaining elections held in the year, including four first contracts and participation by the American Association of University Professors, the American Federation of Teachers, and the National Education Association. Most of the directory presents a statistical analysis in the form of tables presenting data such as: (1) faculty contracts and bargaining agents in public and private institutions in the United States; (2) adjunct faculty contracts and bargaining agents, United States; (3) graduate employee bargaining agents in the United States; (4) faculty collective bargaining at Canadian universities; (5) geographic distribution of unionized faculty; (6) bargaining agents, by state; (7) roster of institutions affected by the Yeshiva decision; (8) status of public sector collective bargaining legislation; and (9) merged bargaining agents. "No-agent" votes (1971-1995) are listed. An index of U.S. and Canadian institutions cited in the Directory is provided. (LEE)
