The Politics of Faculty Unionization: The Experience of Three New England Universities.
Arnold, Gordon B.
This book describes the process of unionization among university faculties using case studies of unionization campaigns at three universities. In higher education, faculty unions may have improved the situation of many faculties, but they may have accomplished this at the cost of increasing public skepticism and even antagonism. The chapters are: (1) "Introduction"; (2) "Faculty and Labor"; (3) "Three Decades of Faculty Unionism"; (4) "Faculty Unionization at the University of Rhode Island"; (5) "Failure and Success at the University of Massachusetts"; (6) "Faculty Unionization at the University of Connecticut"; and (7) "Epilogue." (Contains 70 references.) (SLD)
