American Federation of Teachers
This document sets forth standards of good practice for the employment of professional staff. These guidelines serve as a blueprint for the appropriate treatment of professional staff based on the principle that recognition and equity must be coupled with job security and professional treatment. This publication is divided into two sections: (1) Standards for Employment: Achieving Recognition and Job Security, which includes procedures and requirements, compensation, and professional respect and support; and (2) Standards for Union Representation: Ensuring Full Rights for Professional Staff within their Unions. This publication is intended to enlighten public officials, college trustees, and college administrators about the important benefits of strengthening professional staff's position on campus. Professional staff members and their unions can use these standards in their discussions with faculty and management.
